Transcript of Analysin"Registers

Themes:
We think the themes for this poem would be love and loneliness. This is because the poem is about a mother who is remembering and missing their child, Jack, throughout the poem.
"Out of the warm primordial cave of our conversations, Jack's gone"
"Throughout his first five years an ear always open, at worst ajar"
"I catch myself still listening out for sounds of him in the sensible house"
Structure
-Free verse
-4 Stanzas
Imagery
Out of the warm primordial cave
of our conversations, Jack's gone.
No more chit-chat under the blankets
pegged over chairs and nipped in drawers.

Throughout his first five years an ear
always open, at worst ajar,
I catch myself still listening out
for sounds of him in the sensible house

where nothing stirs but the washing machine
which clicks and churns. I'm loosening his arms
clasped round my neck, detaching myself
from his soft protracted kiss goodbye.

Good boy, diminishing down the long
corridors into the huge unknown
assembly hall, each word strange,
even his name on Miss Cracknell's tongue.

Analysing a Poem...
By: Camila Alegri, Delfina Collazo, Francisco
Cagnoli, Diego Vecino

The voice
We think the voice in this poem would be Jack's mother, since the poem is about a little boy going to school.
My evidence for this would be:
"No more chit-chat under the blankets"
"I'm loosening his arms clasped around my neck, detaching myself from his soft protected kiss goodbye".
"Good boy, diminishing down the long corridors into the huge unknown assembly hall"
Point of view:
The poem is written in 1st person.
Atmosphere: Loneliness, sadness and love.
Out of the warm primordial cave
of our conversations, Jack`s gone.
No more chit-chat under the blankets
pegged over chairs and nipped in drawers.

Throughout his first five years an ear
always open, at worst ajar,
I catch myself still listening out
for sounds of him in the sensible house

where nothing stirs but the washing machine
which clicks and churns. I`m loosening his arms
clasped round my neck, detaching myself
from his soft protracted kiss goodbye.

Good boy, diminishing down their long
corridors into the huge unknown
assembly hall, each word strange,
even his hame on Miss Cracknell`s tongue.
Diction: By this phrases we know that Jack is starting school and the voice, which could be the mother, feels lonely, alone without her little son. She remembers all the funny, magnificent and wonderful moments the had together. We also can see that there´s an excellent relationship between Jack and the voice(which can be the mother), we can realize the magical mother- son bond.
Language
In this stanza we can imagine that the voice, which can be Jack´s mother, remembering all the good times and lots of fun the had playing and chatting together. She realizes that as Jack starts school all those splendid moments they had together are gone.
In the second and third stanza we can imagine the mother alone in the house missing her little boy and remembering him while he´s at school.
In this particular phrase we also can imagine the mother very sad leaving, letting go of her little boy as he goes to school. She feels devastated and sad.
We can imagine the little boy going to a big school, through the large corridors and into the huge unknown assembly hall terrified,feeling lost, disoriented.
metaphor
Situation
Setting:
The author locates this situation at the school. He mentions "long corridors" and "huge unknown assembly hall" which are different places around the school, he also says " Miss Cranckell", she is the teacher which is also the key phrase to transmit us the location (school). We can only suppose the time because it´s not physically show, what the reader may think is that this is happening in the morning because generally school starts at the morning. We know the person with the kid is letting him go when the author mentions "I´m loosening his arms" so we know the boy is going to school, not finishing.
Emotions:
Melancholy, loneliness.
Mood:
The mood of the poems is a very melancholic one, this is shown in the expansion of the problem were Jack´s mother remembers all the good times they shared back then when Jack didn´t attend school. Now, on his first day, she realizes why this last 5 years had been so great.
