individuality of people Friend Because I liked you Better Society expects men to like women Grief n' loss Praise song for my mother One art Because I liked you better Elegy for my Father's Father Society expects men to love women Voice Like a childhood memory As if telling someone else, like: Author goes against the conventional way
of writing poetry, like Heidi against school rules Childhood My parents Follower Friend Tone Friend dyes her hair in "the school colours precisely" Linked with rebellion theme Elegy, rebels against the
conventional structure Elegy, because the whole idea of an elegy is to
praise, but in this one, he praises, but also mentions
his flaws Because I liked you better Friend Country School Praise song for my mother Friendship Historical Context Written in the 70's when the punk
movement was emerging. They were looked down upon by society who believed them to be vandals, rebels, anarchists mainly due to the music they listened to and the way they dressed. During these decades, society was still very racist and discriminating. They saw anything unnutural as a threat to society. The fact that Heidi has a black friend, emphasizes that she is different from everybody else as in that time the society was extremely racist, therefore emphasizing Heidi's need to be unique.
Opression The school tries to prevent the students from expressing themselves and being unique through methods such as uniforms and school colours. For example, there is nothing against dying one's hair in the school rules. However, Heidi is suspended from school because her hair is "not done in the school colours". We get the feeling that this is not the real reason for Heidi's suspension, but that it is actually disguising the real reason: Heidi looking like a punk. Conversational tone engages the reader as a friend. Written in a fixed form (stanzas) yet in free verse (rhyme). This represents the main idea of the poem: We try to be unique, but we can't, due to the opression of society. Ironic Conversational This is shown in various ways, ie. The implicit information we are given in the parenthesis. Adcock was born in Auckland, New Zeland.
Studied Classics at Victoria University in Wellington. (NZ)
Taught at the University of Otago.
Moved to London in 1963.
She has been writing full-time since 1981. She looses her mother, which we believe might have led her to dye her hair blue. The colour blue has connotations of grief and saddness The End
