GCSE: War Poetry
Meet our team of inspirational teachers
Yellow Palm Analysis. Yellow palm is based on scenes gathered from Palestine street, Bagdad, according to the poet, Robert Minninick
desperation implies that he feels threatened and helpless against the onslaught from ?enemy? missiles, and i feel this represents the feelings of the civilians as a whole, not just the individual. In the next section, Minninick meets two blind beggars, and passes them one hundred black dinars, which as I?m sure you?ll agree is an act of kindness and compassion, the last thing you would expect to find in a warzone. However it is then revealed that the two beggars were once men of the imperials guard in the mother of all wars, which again leads back to the conflict and chemical attacks.
