Описание слайда:

Описание слайда:

Описание слайда:

The wind seems to be threatening, it comes out of a dark past. The use of the sea and items associated with it continues as the trees are compared to “falling as whales” An affinity for the natural world is displayed further by this since the trees are being unrooted – as Grace feels she is.

Описание слайда:

The storm seems alive and powerful, and seems to be trying to communicate with someone. It is dangerous – but at the same time bringing back happy memories of her childhood.

Описание слайда:

The sense that England and the Caribbean are all part of the same planet is spelled out in the poem’s last line.
