Valentine Presentation

Transcript: “Here. It will blind you with tears like a lover.It will make your reflection a wobbling photo of grief.” -Tone turns aggressive. -Noticed by dramatic one word line, punctiation & rhythm. -Pause exists between: “It will blind you with tears / like a lover.” - creates dramatic effect. -Creates image of crying eyes in 2nd line. -Evokes feeling of stinging eyes while chopping onions, method of sensory imagery. Third Stanza Mood Goodbye: -Duffy’s promise to her lover is often mentioned, also that she will return. Wants her lover to be faithful and wait. -Examples of this are in Line 14 & 15. Forbidden Romance: -Another theme about how her romance with lover is not allowed, which is known because she has to leave so abruptly. Lust: -Lines 4 & 5 is a simile for having sex and promising her virginity to her lover. Unique Relationship: -This is a very big theme, often repeated how unique their relationship is. -In Lines 1-2 she is saying that their romance is not the stereotypical cliché, but it is deeper, not needing the “materialstic” things. Fifth Stanza Eighth Stanza Language Techniques: • Carol Ann Duffy has also used several language techniques such as assonance and alliteration in her poem. • Examples of Assonace: • -“like a lover" -Line 8 • This phrase emphasizes that their relationship is ending now and they are not now lovers anymore, it creates a dramatic effect. • -“as we are" -Line 16 This phrase also emphasizes their unique relationship and is also linked with line 8, however still calling them we, which is a contradiction. Line Techniques: An emjambment is one point expressed in two following lines. Duffy creates several emjambments with metaphors, one example would be in line 4-5: “It promises light - like the careful undressing of love.„ This creates a dramatic effect, because she is dragging out her point, about the onion. Introduction I chose the poem “Valentine„ because I felt that of the eight available ones we were able to choose from it was the poem I felt most drawn to. It used the most interesting and unique language, I really liked how Duffy revealed several different insights and points of views throughout the poem. Fourth Stanza Sensory Imagery is words that a poet uses to describe any of the senses: touch, sight, smell, hearing and taste. Duffy uses this method quite a few times. • Examples for touch: • -"like the careful undressing of love." -Line 5 • -"Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips" -Line 14 • Examples for Sight: • -"It promises light" -Line 4 • -"It will blind you with tears" -Line 7 • Examples for Smell: • -"Its scent will cling to your fingers" -Line 22 Examples for Hearing and Taste: Duffy does not use any. Figurative Imagery Second Stanza Why did I chose this poem? “Not a red rose or a satin heart.” -Leaves big impression, not a usual love poem. -Points out that relationship with lover is unique to any other romance. -“Not a red rose„ is bizzare thing to put at beginning of a valentines gift for her lover. -Pessimistic line, on romantic holiday. -Doesn’t want to be cheesy. “Not a cute card or a kissogram.” -Interesting that poet puts 2 1-line stanzas after one-another. -Because she wants to make two major statements after one-another but does not want them to mix. -Emphasizes how different their romance is to the typical one, therefore she gives her lover an onion. -Kissogram leaves a perverse impression; kissogram is someone who is payed to kiss people. -Duffy might be saying that in the eyes of her lover she was not respected. “I am trying to be truthful.” -Brings across message that what she is saying (dramatic effect on reader once again) has a big significance in the poem. -Important because reveals Duffy’s intentions toward her lover: to be honest and bid farewell (for what seems to be the last time). -Admits negative aspects to relationship in pessimistic (appropriate) tone. -It is clear that the poet likes to use a simple writing style but still have a powerful effect. “Take it.Its platinum loops shrink to a wedding-ring, if you like.” -First line maybe interpreted as aggressive, as she is speaking to lover and “shoving the onion into the lovers face„ -Interesting image of the ring inside onion, a wedding ring. -Beautiful image because at first she is angry with her lover, but then she says she wants to marry her lover. Sixth Stanza Valentine by Carol Ann Duffy The poem Valentine by Carol Ann Duffy is a modern new way to a romantic love poem. She uses the main metaphor: the onion, which is used in an almost pessimistic way towards her failing relationship with her lover. It is a way of ending the romance they had, therefore the contradiction with the rose. Obviously the onion has high importance in the poem, as it is used to portray several metaphors and images: a moon, blindness, kiss and a wedding ring. What are the central themes of this poem? What are the hidden themes of this poem? Conclusion -Very sad and regretful. -Duffy does not voluntarily leaving her
