Act I H. Open for Discussion. All My Sons: Act 1 Summary. Annie tells Chris, in front of Joe and Kate, that she’s surprised he has so many clothes, but Chris reveals that Annie is staying in Larry’s old room, and that the clothes and shoes, still shined by Kate, are Larry’s—Annie seems shocked by this, and wonders aloud whether Kate is still waiting for Larry to return.

All My Sons: Act 1 Summary

Annie admits, after some prodding by Kate, that she is not dating anyone seriously, but when Kate sees this as evidence Annie is waiting for Larry to return, and tells Annie as much, Annie replies, flatly, that she is not waiting for Larry, and that Kate must be the only mother still in America to do so, after three long years. An especially poignant scene. It is so hard for Annie to imagine the extent to which Kate still grieves for Larry—and expects him to return—that Annie cannot believe Kate would have kept Larry’s clothes and continued to shine his shoes, as if he might walk through the door that evening.

On this site you will find: A Different History. Context Bhatt is an Indian born in Pune, a metropolis (mega city) in the west of India.

A Different History

At 12, her family moved to the USA where she had to learn English from scratch. She has talked about her identity struggle with Gujarati (an Indian language) representing the ‘deepest layer of her identity’, but English representing her daily life and work. Themes There are a couple of themes that would enable you to link this poem to others in your selection. First of all we have the conflict over identity where she is questioning how a person can define who they are – she feels guilty for not feeling fully Indian and valuing aspects of the arch-enemy: English culture (I’ll explain later!). CIE Lit Poems 2013 Revision. I said that one of the things I most liked about Brewster’s poem “Where I Come From” was its simplicity: “It’s a beautiful example of a poet doing exactly what a poet should do: realising something quite profound, and sharing that idea with us in a beautiful, accessible, thought-provoking way.”

CIE Lit Poems 2013 Revision

That’s what the best poetry is to me. It doesn’t have to be simple (though simple is beautiful: read Wendy Cope), and it doesn’t necessarily have to be immediately accessible (“immediate accessibility” isn’t a criteria for the lovers of the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins or Shakespeare), but for the more complex poems, there has to be that chink of approachability, that glimmer of light, that is the opening for you to “get into” the text. And for me personally, there has to be emotion behind it: explicit, implicit, whatever – poetry needs to make me feel.

Matthew's Poetry Analysis: Summer Farm - Norman MacCaig

Everything described in the story is part of his mind, with perhaps every animal representing a different aspect of his mind. This poet always discusses the concept of having layers and layers of dreams, like how the mind is made up of layers and layers. Sounds like inception to me.
