Discursive Written Analysis.
Wherever I Hang. Grace Nichols
Reflections. Mario Petrucci.
On first looking at the two pieces I have chosen, the preference of dialect fluctuate to a great extent, giving each poem a dissimilar insight to the dialect to each author. In Wherever I Hang, the idiom is of a native tongue to the Caribbean, with its seemingly imperfect sentences.
'Had big rats in de floorboards'
V1 Line 5
Where as Mario Petrucci has used Received Pronunciation, giving the reader more complete sentences.
'Bees will sting like a razor'
V1 Line 1
The vocabulary in Petrucci's Reflection is uncomplicated to read although every line is a metaphor, proficiently put together to make the reader observe each line in detail. While also generating a number of connotations in each line, giving the reader room for thought. A good paradigm could be gained from almost every line, but the fourth line is most apt.
'Hills as old as hats'
V1 Line 4
It isn't until one hears this that the thought of hats sat on top of a wardrobe or on shelves
