Introduction

What is the mood of "A Scherzo A Shy Persons Wishes." How is the mood conveyed and what effect does it have on our understanding of the central message of the poem and the writer's persona. How effective do you think the poem is? The mood in "A Scherzo a Shy Persons Wishes" changes and varies through the poem. Firstly the title has "scherzo" written which means briskly live music. This shows that the person is very lively but the poem doesn't show it, "on the sunny wall out of tip-toe reach." As well "tip-toe reach" stands out because it shows it is close to going out. In the poem the word "with" and "whisper" is repeated through the poem which this shows alliteration. ...read more.

Conclusion

The central message in the poem is shown clearly throughout the poem. The central message shows the felling of the person in a strong way.

This gives a calm feeling to the person and shows what he wants to do when he goes out. As well this shows he thinks is lively. At line 26-29 he says he would be in any of the three examples he/she says and this is backed up by the last line which is "Anywhere, anywhere, out of this room!" shows that he wants to leave his shyness and become lively, and leave his dark hole behind.
