This poem expresses how she feels that she has lost her mother tongue while speaking the foreign language within which she now lives, but in her dreams it grows back. Similarly, 'Hurricane Hits England', by Grace Nichols describes how she felt
From Moniza Alvi's poetry, how do we learn about the challenges of living between two cultures? Moniza Alvi writes many poems based on the difficulties she faces whilst living between two cultures and I am going to explore these difficulties through the following poems: - "The Sari", "Throwing out my Fathers Dictionary", "an Unknown Girl" and "Presents from my Aunts in Pakistan." Firstly, I am going to discuss her poem "The Sari" which is a metaphorical poem telling us what happened to her
she was aware that she is going to get some gifts from her beloved aunts living in Pakistan she expected to get some ordinary western style of clothes I.e. denim and corduroy, but unfortunately she received some Pakistani styled clothes I.e. salwar kameez, Indian jewellery and sarees. So, this poem totally describes how she reacted and felt towards the incident happened. The purpose of the poem "Presents from my Aunts in Pakistan" is that the girl who has been described in the poem has been
Moniza Alvi's Presents from my Aunts in Pakistan Moniza Alvi was born in Lahore, in Pakistan, the daughter of a Pakistani father and an English mother. She moved to Hatfield in England when she was a few months old. She didn't revisit Pakistan until after the publication of her first book of poems, The Country over my Shoulder, from which this poem comes. The poet says: 'Presents from My Aunts... was one of the first poems I wrote - when I wrote this poem I hadn't actually been back to
means that the phrases are arranged loosely across the page. It is divided into stanzas of varying length. The girl contrasts the beautiful clothes and jewellery of India with English clothing. She describes how it feels like wearing the 'salwar kameez' and how she longed for denim and corduroy. She's drawn to the loveliness of the gifts but feels awkward wearing them because she is more comfortable in English clothes. The poem is full of associated, sometimes contrasting images. An example
The People in Night of the Scorpion and My Aunt in Pakistan Compare the way in which the poet presents the people in Night of the Scorpion and Presents from my Aunt in Pakistan. We live in a world of many cultures and each has it is own way of communicating and two very different poems reflect this. In order to compare and contrast the traditions which have become apparent within the poems; ‘Night of the Scorpion’ by Nissim Ezekiel and ‘Presents from my Aunts in Pakistan’ by Moniza Alvi
tried to assimilate into the English culture, and instead she started not accepting her Pakistani roots and was worried mostly about her friends’ judgment. “My salwar kameez didn’t impress the school friend who sat on my bed, asked to see my weekend clothes”. In this quotation Alvi is trying to explain that even though she liked her salwar kameez, she couldn’t wear it since it didn’t amaze ...
interesting as the pathetic fallacy gives you the feeling of the Caribbean climate. The cultural identity of Moniza Alvi's poems is her heritage and traditions. For instance, in 'Presents from my Aunts in Pakistan' she creates images of the Salwar Kameez using words like "peacock-blue", "glistening like an orange split open". Here she has used metaphor and simile to emphasis the beauty of the presents and makes it appealing to the eyes. I found reading 'The Fat Black Woman goes Shopping'
