How characteristic is “Hedge School” of Sheer’s Collection “Hedge School” is essentially about the discovery of the speaker’s identity through experiences within nature where key themes are place, identity, violence, exploration and heritage. The speaker, who speaks in first person, describes a journey from school in September, during which he stops to pick blackberries. Sheers explores different ideas about what to do with the blackberries that he has picked; should he eat them and taste their “variety” of flavours, or should he “hoard” them, or should he crush them in his hand. However the interesting part of this poem is how the speaker interprets his actions whilst interacting with nature. With little rhyme and irregular stanzas, “Hedge School” is uncharacteristic of Sheer’s collection both in terms positioning within the collection and in its own structure.
