Words and Connotation

poem week 3 2

After discussion and help from our native friends we were able to dissect and better understand the meaning of Jacques Prevert’s poem Le Cancre. It truly is beautiful. Though poems may not be direct or completely clear the way the author writes and the word choice exposes the connotation of the words chosen. To understand the connotation of words gives us all an insight of culture.
