What Connections Have You Found Between The Way Duffy And Pugh Present Relationships In Their Poetry

712 words - 3 pages

Duffy and Pugh both present their poetry in similar and different ways. In the title of Duffy’s poem ‘whoever she was’ it suggests to be a nostalgic poem of someone without an identity, with the ‘whoever’ suggesting a careless attitude towards the character. Similarly in Pugh’s poem ‘hello’ the title suggests loneliness and the character wanting to create a relationship with someone.

However, Duffy uses a confusion of pronouns, ‘she, myself, I’ to exaggerate her confusion over her identity. Pugh’s poem is also ...view middle of the document...

607 words - 3 pages I have studied three different texts, UP (Pete Docter, 2009) Touching The Void (Kevin McDonald 2003) and The Departed (Martin Scorsese 2006).
