How is Imagery portrayed in two poems (Night of the Scorpion and Blessing) you have studied?
‘Night of the Scorpion’ is a poem about a cultural situation which differs from ours. This is a narrative poem from the son’s point of view, whose mother was stung by a Scorpio. The poem is loaded with techniques and devices which project one of the best imageries in the Cluster 1 of the Different Cultures poems, some analysis of which will be developed upon in this essay.
Along the same lines is the poem ‘Blessing’ which is also a different culture poem. It is about water in a hot country and is not particularly the best poem that projects a clear image to me, but it’s certainly one of the most interesting one in Cluster 1.
