Bayonet Charge
 
Suddenly he awoke and was running – raw
In raw-seamed hot khaki, his sweat heavy,
Stumbling across a field of clods towards a green hedge
That dazzled with rifle fire, hearing
Bullets smacking the belly out of the air –
He lugged a rifle numb as a smashed arm;
The patriotic tear that had brimmed in his eye
Sweating like molten iron from the centre of his chest, -
 
In bewilderment then he almost stopped –
In what cold clockwork of the stars and the nations
Was he the hand pointing that second? He was running
Like a man who has jumped up in the dark and runs
Listening between his footfalls for the reason
Of his still running, and his foot hung like
Statuary in mid-stride. Then the shot-slashed furrows
 
Threw up a yellow hare that rolled like a flame 
And crawled in a threshing circle, its mouth wide
Open silent, its eyes standing out.
He plunged past with his bayonet toward the green hedge,
King, honour, human dignity, etcetera
Dropped like luxuries in a yelling alarm
To get out of that blue crackling air His terror’s touchy dynamite.

What is happening in each of the stanzas?

Stanza 1:





Stanza 2:






Stanza 3:

Highlight effective quotations which you think show conflict.
Annotate which language techniques you can spot in these quotations.

Example, ‘He lugged a rifle
numb as a smashed arm
’ – violent simile

Key words:

Conflict
Alliteration
Repetition
Adjectives
Simile
Metaphor
Onomatopoeia

*Challenge: Juxtaposition

Progress check: Now, on the back of your whiteboards, mind map your initial thoughts on how you think conflict is presented.

Choose the quote you think is the most effective in showing conflict.
Write this in the middle of your A4 sheets.
He lugged a rifle numb as a smashed arm

The adjective ‘numb’ not only suggests a loss of sensation physically but also infers a loss of emotional response due to the horrendous sights he would have endured on the battlefield.

The adjective ‘numb’ could also suggest that the rifle is useless against the other, more powerful, weapons being used on the battlefield by the soldier’s opponents.
Violent simile

Onomatopoeia suggests that his arm has been violently shattered due to the extreme impact of the bullets which have been fired at him.

Miss Suleman's example:

The writer intends to present conflict as having an extremely violent nature and the capacity to cause extreme suffering both physically and mentally on a very destructive scale.

This is particularly shown by the use of a violent simile, ‘He lugged a rifle numb as a smashed arm’.

The adjective ‘
smashed’ suggests that his arm has been violently shattered due to the extreme impact of the bullets which have been fired at him.
The adjective ‘numb’

not only suggests a loss of sensation physically but also suggests a loss of emotional response due to the horrendous sights he would have endured on the battlefield.

This could also suggest that the rifle is useless against the other, more powerful, weapons being used on the battlefield by the soldier’s opponents.
