Analysis of Climbing My Grandfather by Waterhouse

English Literature



5m 54s

In this podcast we discuss Climbing My Grandfather by Waterhouse and ask the core question of how does the pet use imagery to present relationships? It will look at the content of the poem, the language including the extended metaphor of exploration. As well as analysing form and structure it will also analyse comparisons of Climbing My Grandfather to other poems in the collection
