To be successful…

How does the author use language, structure and form in the poem?

Have a copy of the poem in front of you

‘Belfast Confetti’

Ciaran Carson

slide12

-confused

‘kept stuttering’

-trapped

‘why can’t I escape’

-personal (1st person)

How could we describe the voice?

The speaker could be:

-an innocent resident

-a victim of ‘the explosion’

-a police suspect

-on their own or in a group

-perhaps even a terrorist themselves

Who do you think they are?

slide14

“And /

the explosion/

itself”

What is /

My Name?”

Carson structures his poem using enjambment

This reinforces the feeling that the speaker’s thoughts are breaking up. The frequent line breaks enact the ‘stuttering’ of the speaker’s voice.
