Analysis of the Manhunt by Simon Armitage

English Literature



6m 38s

In this podcast we analyse The Manhunt by Simon Armitage, a poem about a soldier returning to his wife. We look at the context, meaning and ideas within the poem, including how the soldier suffers from mental anguish. We analyse how Armitage uses language, structure and form to highlight how a wife tries to rebuild the relationship with her husband as he returns from the trauma of military action.
