SA: Sample ParagraphComplete the task given on the sheet.Further Challenge: You can evaluate the language used by the poets. (In other words, explore a range of meanings behind the quotes you have selected from the poems.)SA: A Short Example Stealing and Hitcher.Firstly, the narrators of both poems could be described as spiteful and unfeeling characters. In Stealing that narrator explains, part of the thrill was knowing that children would cry in the morning. This indicates to the reader that one of his primary motivations in stealing the snowman was because he knew that it would distress the children who had worked so hard to create it. This alienates the reader to a large extent because the thief has no compassion for his victims. Similarly, the speaker in Hitcher is equally callous. However in this poem the actions of the protagonist had deathly consequences. The speaker here shows little remorse for his actions and blatantly asserts that he let him have it, proudly confessing that he mercilessly attacked the hippie six times with the krocklok. The fact that he didnt even swerve conveys his emotional negligence in the aftermath of the attack and shocks the reader.
