particular lady. i wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke Mini Task 3 Now in your own words write down what you think is the story of the poem? i wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke Mini Task 3 - The story of the Poem This is essentially a love poem and in the poem the poet is trying to prove to his lady-love how useful he is and how much he loves her. He is even prepared to let her take the lead in running the relationship. At the end of the poem he accepts he has made a mistake by loving another and he declares that he does not wish to be with the other woman, he wants her. So the poet is either in a relationship which he wants to leave for his new love; or he has cheated on his true love and now wishes to go back to her. So it is a poem about betrayal as well as being a love poem. i wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke Oral Task In your group practice reading out your section of the poem.

In many poems IMAGERY is a Key Feature but in this poem John Cooper Clarke has also used REPETITION. Mini Task 9 There are over one million words in the English language. There are rarely more than a few hundred words in a poem. So, given that a good poet is a master of the English Language, what are the three reasons why a poet might want to use repetition in any poem they write? i wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke Key Feature - Repetition Mini Task 9 There are over one million words in the English language. There are never more than a few dozen or a few hundred words in a poem. So, given that a good poet is a master of the English Language, why might a poet want to use repetition in any poem they write? In general a poet uses REPETITION for rhythmic purposes or to emphasize the point they are trying to make, or for both of these reasons. So the answer is, RHYTHM, EMPHASIS or BOTH. i wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke Key Feature - Repetition Mini Task 10 There are 139 words in this poem and 81 of them are repetitions

more than half the poem! So why does John Cooper Clarke use REPETITION in i wanna be yours? i wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke Key Feature Repetition Mini Task 9 In i wanna be yours John Cooper Clarke uses repetition both for rhythmic purposes and to emphasize the point he is trying to make. Mini Task 10 Copy out the explanation below. let me be your vacuum cleaner breathing in your dust let me be your ford cortina i will never rust if you like your coffee hot let me be your coffee pot you call the shots i wanna be yours In the opening stanza the poet repeats let me be at the start of the stanza and then your coffee and yours. This all helps establish the rhythm or beat of the poem ex: dum dum dum dee dum dum dum dum-dum dum dum dum [The rhythm is further enhanced by the rhyme pattern in the poem.]

i wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke Key Feature Repetition Mini Task 11 - Copy out the explanation below. The other purpose of the repetitions is to emphasize how much the poet wants this lady, how useful he can be and how deep is his love. For example each stanza starts with let me be and ends with I wanna be yours and in the Atlantic Ocean section he tries to prove the depth of his love for her. let me be your vacuum cleaner breathing in your dust let me be your ford cortina i will never rust if you like your coffee hot let me be your coffee pot you call the shots i wanna be yours let me be your raincoat for those frequent rainy days let me be your dreamboat when you wanna sail away let me be your teddy bear take me with you anywhere i don't care i wanna be yours let me be your electric meter i will not run out let me be the electric heater you get cold without

let me be your setting lotion hold your hair with deep devotion deep as the deep atlantic ocean that's how deep is my emotion deep deep deep deep de deep deep i don't wanna be hers i wanna be yours i wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke Poetic Devices - Enjambment Mini Task 12 Copy out the definition of Enjambment. Enjambment is a French word that means to step across or step over. In poetry this means the sense in one line or stanza runs on to the next line or the next stanza. Punctuation usually stops this flow. Unfortunately there is no punctuation in i wanna be yours to help to give you clues to the points at which you need to pause for breath or to read on where ENJAMBMENT is present. Mini Task 13 - Enjambment Now put in a full stop or an arrow at the end of each line in the whole poem to mark where you think there is punctuation or Enjambment. i wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke Mini Task 13 Punctuation & Enjambment let me be your vacuum cleaner breathing in your dust. let me be your ford cortina

The principal tone of the poem is very light or funny because of the strange selection of objects that John Cooper Clarke uses to demonstrate his love. However under the surface there is a darker and more serious side to poem as the poem is also about betrayal because the next to last line says i dont want t be hers. So the poet is either in a relationship with another woman and wants to dump her to go with the woman he is talking to in the poem, or at some point in the past he was with the woman he talks to and has left her to go with this other woman. He now regrets this betrayal and wants to return to his original love. i wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke The Structure Of The Poem - Imagery Imagery: words and phrases that are used in literature to create clear
