Comparing the Lit poems
Transcript of Comparing the Lit poems
The character whose voice we hear in 'Stealing' is not as disturbed as the speaker in 'Hitcher'. It could be argued that Duffy's character is so 'distubed' that he or she chooses to steal a snowman admiting that
"Part of the thrill was knowing that children would cry in the morning."
This quotation suggests the character is intentionally cruel towards children in the same way Armitage's character is violent towards the hitcher but the fact that the speaker later concedes, having mindlessly destroyed the snowman, that "it seems daft now" is significant. This remorse reveals to us the contrast between the character Duffy portrays and those in Armitage and Browning's poems where the characters are disturbed and devious throughout. Structure and Subject modelling Quote/ Example Link back to question The dramatic monolgue in 'Hitcher' is different from the other three. Because the characters in Duffy and Browning's poems appear to be talking to another person we can almost understand their deviant behaviour. The poet presents their character trying to impress someone. What is so disturbing about Armitage's creation is that he appears to be addressing the reader directly as if in a confession. During this 'confession' he seems to show no remorse for the violence he or she has committed. Consequently it is easier to relate to the character in 'Stealing' as he or she seems to be a delinquent youth who, having learnt the folly of their way, is explaining why crime used to be like a hobby for them. Browning's poems also have a more sinister devious tone. Both poems are about characters who we realise are murderers. The Duke in 'My Last Duchess' is effectively admitting to have committed murder while the female voice in 'The Laboratory' is in the process of plotting one.
