Thought bubble

 

In this activity, we will be jogging your memory with comparing the content of 'Climbing My Grandfather' with the poems you best see fit out of the options you get given. 

 

Before we begin, here's a quick list of the key content you could talk about and use to compare with other poems:

 

Metaphors/ Similes

Familial love

Natural imagery

Peace

Childhood

Nostalgia

 

You can think of any other themes which you think Waterhouse uses, as long as you have the evidence to show that it is a recurring topic in the poem.

 

Remember: take your time, as there's no rush and make sure to jot down any explanations which you find helpful!

 

You should always refer to your own text when working through these examples.  These quotations are for reference only.
