Passion by Kathleen Raine

Now on literature we are analysing the poem Passion of Kathleen Raine.

In our first class we search the life of the author.

I took notes:

  • She was a mystical poet
  • She live nature and hated modernity
  • Eastern, spiritual phylosophy of life

In our second and third class we read the poem and analysing in full on a slideshare.

I took notes:

  • The sky is talking to her to convince her that she had to move on
  • Themes:
  • Heartbreak, Unrequilled love
  • Nature will never abandon those who love her; mankind will (because we are imperfect)
  • Tone:
  • Depressing, sad, sorrowful
  • And then, hopeful and joyful

S1:

  • Inside = chaos
  • Outside = tranquil

S2:

  • She was waiting for a phone call of the man she loves

S3:

  • She can’t write anymore
  • She was allusinating

S4:

  • The sky spoke to her in a clear language
  • Sky, personification

S5:

  • Voice: nature
  • You and nature are one

S6:

  • Life goes on, she had to move on, she had to stop suffering

S7:

  • She could see everything clear, that she had to move on, that she didn’t need te man because passion is in nature
  • Nature is inmortal and full of passion

S8:

  • The sky is like her mind
  • She changer her mind
  • She can see everything in a possitive way

 

Later, Pato gave us an essay that we have to do with Senior 2 about the poem.

I did it with Agustin Reynal.
