543 words - 3 pages

Comparison between Tianamen and Belfast Confetti.The poem Tiananmen is about protest, about the people who died whilst protesting. Tiananmen is a square of national importance, in Peking, China. It was a scene of world famous event in the late 1980's and was written in Hong Kong.The poem Belfast Confetti is also about protest and the people who died. The man, who wrote the poem was a journalist, he was at the town when the bomb went off. He compares all the debris to punctuation.In Tiananmen James Fenton repeated the word 'tiananmen', he did this because he wanted to show the pain that the protested experienced at that place. He repeats the first four lines of the first stanza ...view middle of the document...

He did this because he is saying that you can not think otherwise you are doing wrong, just like the protesters were doing. In the third stanza the words rhyming are 'deaf' and 'breath'. James Fenton makes this rhyme to show how the old men killing the innocent people will be next to die. In the fourth stanza the words rhyming are 'style' and 'pile'. The poet makes these words rhyme because he is saying how they are putting them in style, in neat, however they just do it with out any care. In the fifth stanza there are no rhyming words at all. In the last stanza he repeats the first four lines of the first stanza. However none of the other words rhyme. I think that the poets intention was to make people remember and realise the pain and anguish the people had to go through to stand up for something that they believed in.In the poem Belfast Confetti Ciaran Carson has not used any rhyming words. The entire poem is a metaphor. He uses punctuation to describe the debris. Also the poem does not really have any rhythm. I do not really like this poem as much as I like much as I like Tiananmen because I prefer poems, which have a rhyme.In conclusion the two poems compare because they are both protest poems, and about the people who died whilst they were protesting. Also they are both at capital cities. However they are both different because in Tiananmen the government kills the protesters, but in Belfast Confetti the protesters are the ones killing the innocent people. Tiananmen is a communist capital whereas Belfast Confetti is a scene of sectarian troubles. So overall I preferred to read Tiananmen.
