5 White’s Poetry Performance

Today in English we worked together to perform a poem. We tried really hard to remember the words. We used pictures and actions to help us.

The Walrus and the Carpenter is a narrative poem. What makes it a narrative poem?

What happens to the poor oysters?

What emotions are shown in the poem?

  1. The Walrus and the Carpenter is a Narrative poem as the poem has rhyming words and lines 2&4 rhyme.

    The poor Oysters was eaten up by the Naughty Walrus&The Carpenter.

    In the 14 stanza it says ”But Not on us”,that means a confused emotion.

  2. The Walrus and the Carpenter is a narrative poem because it tells a story.

    The thing that happened to the poor oysters was that the walrus and the carpenter ate ever one of the poor oysters.

    In the second stanza it says the moon was shining sulkily and the emotion for that is sad.
    The other emotions in the poem were greediness,sadness and happiness also many more.

  3. The Walrus and the Carpenter is a narrative poem as it follows a story of a walrus and a carpenter leads some oysters a very long way away from home so they could eat every one.
    The poor oysters have to suffer because they had thought the walrus would eat their whole family and so he did!
    The emotions that i see were hungry and greedy because is says in the poem that the walrus had eaten every one and throughout the whole poem it sounds like the walrus and the carpenter were dieing to eat every single oyster therefore that it shows that this poem is mostly about greediness.😎😎😎

  4. The Walrus and the Carpenter is Narrative as it follows a story named Alice in Wonderland.Also because the poem doesn`t have to follow rhythmic patterns, syllables.

    Sadly, in the Walrus and the Carpenter poem, the poor Oysters walked so far that there had to be on sad time, the Oysters get eaten by the Walrus and the Carpenter.

    In the second stanza, on the first line, it says “The Moon was shining sulkily”, which is a sad emotion.:(.It also says, “A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk”, this is joy.:)
