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.

Compare and contrast how Duffy and Lochhead explore aspects of the natural world in two of the poems you have studied. ‘The Dolphins’ by Carol Ann Duffy and ‘The Beekeeper’ by Liz Lochhead both explore aspects of the natural world very skilfully in their poetry. Their focus is largely similar where it is ‘the man’ in Duffy’s poem and ‘The Beekeeper’ in Lochhead’s who have ultimate control over the animals. However, they express their views in a very different manner, where both work equally well to explore the theme. It is important to examine the title of each poem in order to help appreciate how the poet will portray the theme.

Self-Knowledge through Nature seen in Robert Frost’s Poems Nature figures prominently in Frost’s poetry. His poems usually include a moment of interaction or encounter between a human speaker and a natural subject or experience. These encounters end in profound realizations and have significant consequences for the speaker. Engaging with nature, through both manual labor and/or exploration, has numerous results; a few being, self-knowledge, and substantial understanding of the human state. Many of Frost’s poems focus on the act of discovery and realizations and expresses how being engaged with nature leads to development and knowledge.
Despite the squeamish reactions of some classmates, frog dissection has many benefits. Amid the scissors, specimens, and unforgettable foul aroma of the lab we discovered specific lessons that extend beyond basic biology. The most obvious value revolves around the tactile experience, but we also learn respect for life and proper dissection skills that will be helpful in higher level lab classes. Most animals used in dissection(including amphibians, birds, snakes, turtles, fish and invertebrates) are taken from the wild, even though many have been declining in population. Demand for Dissection Specimens Increases Pressure on Threatened Species Researchers from the World Conservation Union reported in 2004 that a third of all amphibian species around the globe, including frogs, were threatened with extinction.
