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 and the impact those particular choices have upon the overall tone of the poem. Finally they will discover how in turn, these specific choices impact the reader’s perception and understanding of the poem.
This class is perfect for students to analyse the poetic language choices of not only Island Man, but any poem.
