Encouraging Thinking through Effective Questioning
Transcript of Encouraging Thinking through Effective Questioning
Marrysong is the most contemporary of the love poems and perhaps the most accessable to us. However, there is more to it than just the extended metaphor of mapping geography.
The opening line is important. On their own, the opening words, 'He never learned her', are clearly criticizing the husband. However, the word, 'quite', totally changes the sentiment, instead suggesting the husband has tried but narrowly failed. Indeed, the pause created by the comma before quite, creates a far more gentle tone than criticism.
We are shown both sides of the wife, her anger and her joy. Again, think about specific words such as, 'stones', and, 'walled'. How do these cleverly evoke the emotions or situations they are metaphorically describing? There is also some clever word play, such as in the penultimate line when he puns on the word, 'Wondered'. When spelt, 'wandered', this word means to walk around, not to think. This is clearly a pun as although he, 'stayed home', this implies that he will metaphorically be wandering around the landscapes his wife is creating.
The poem appears to be in free verse, despite the odd rhyming couplet. However, the final couplet serve to end the poem on a note of unity. Where before the lack of a regular metre and the constant caesura reflect her changing, or ruleless geography, the final couplet is harmonious, like the husband and we assume, their relationship.
Overall, the poem seems to suggest that we must enjoy the rough and the smooth of a relationship if we are to make it truly successful. Remember when you write about it that it is about a husband and a wife, not Scott and his own wife. The fact it is called Marrysong and written in the third person makes it impersonal and therefore about marriage and not one particular couple.
