Video Analysis of Wind by Ted Hughes for Moon on the Tides

This is a video analysis I did of Ted Hughes' poem Wind, which is in the Place Section of the AQA Anthology Moon on the Tides. Learn more about me.

I'm talking without notes so I don't pick up every image - notably where the light is 'flexing like the lens of a mad eye', when he 'scaled along the house' and my all time favourite, where the 'wind wielded blade light'.

If you want more detail on the sensory language go here. An essay on this poem is coming soon. I'm also planning to film an annotation and as I write the essay with comments on what I'm doing and why.
