A lot of factors affect how a poet sets the mood of their poem. In this class, students will explore the language choices made by Grace Nichols in her poem the Island Man. They will delve into the meanings and effects the language creates as well as the impact those particular choices have upon the overall tone of the poem. Students will also discover these specific choices impact the reader’s perception and understanding of the poem. This class is aimed at students in Years 7 - 9 studying poetry!
