This was the first assignment we did on poetry where we got 2 different poems about identity and had to explain the meaning behind linguistic techniques of both poems to each other. Manaka and I got the poem ‘Mistaken Identity’ while my other partner, Anoushka got the poem ‘Dear John.’ The following recording does include some mistakes in our analysis, but generally expresses the similarities in a poet’s craft and the message behind both the poems. In the Mistaken Identity poem, in particular, Manaka. and I focused on the central idea of finding ourselves and the importance of living our lives as we wish to. I think Anoushka’s had similar underlying ideas and this allowed for our discussions to not be two separate explanations but interrelated with one another.
