July 20, Peter Shenneski. But it is written Skyn … Skry … Skryznecki. Whether he intended it or not at the time of writing please, pleeeease someone give me an opportunity to start on the basics of Postmodernism!
To the cultured word-palate of the poetic gourmand, this is fine dining. Let me show you what I mean. He repeated it so I never forgot. On a literal level, he is learning the dead language of Latin from an ancient historical source. He continues to make clear this lack of connection in the final stanza: This, then, would allow an interpretation of the lines that suggests a difficulty experienced by the young Skryznecki in smoothly navigating between the different cultures he inhabits; a lack of ability to cross borders between being Australian, being a member of his family, being an individual, and being Polish.
It indicates metaphorically the tension experienced between father and son. But it also suggests future ramifications for the poet. But tents are temporary, they do not last.
Similarly, the allusion to the Wall itself suggests the futility of trying to preserve the idea that what is south of the wall is better than what is to the north. The binary opposition set up by this historical reference can hold no better than the actual Wall held.
The Gaelic tribes north of the Wall eventually overran the territory guarded by the Romans to the south. Metaphorically, the binary opposition of Polish equals barbaric, irrelevant, rejected and Australian equals civilised, relevant, and acceptedt is shown to be impossible for the poet to sustain in his later life.
So, no belonging for Skryznecki at school then. The answer for him must be to totally embrace his Polish ancestry! The poem Ancestors makes it clear that he feels no comfortable affinity there either: Migrant Hostel continues this sense of impermanence, of the impossibility of finding somewhere to rest and be comfortable for any length of time: His school hat no longer fits because of those ideas, and he does not fit with his peers because of the thinking he has inherited.
The air was crowded With a dampness that slowly Sank into our thoughts- But we ate it all: The silence, the cold, the benevolence Of empty streets. It ironically inverts the benevolence of a welcoming country and makes it an empty gesture, a cruelty of isolation.
The only crowds are miserable thoughts, it seems. It commands my admiration for his technical prowess, for his ability to make me think on multiple levels simultaneously.
But I dislike it. Because poetry is so much more than words strung together. It is a feeling communicated with power and depth. And the feelings that Skryznecki communicates to me through these poems is that he chooses to dwell on his own isolation and he rejects everyone.Immigrants at Central Station, – Responders who have moved to a foreign country can feel a sense of belonging to the experiences of the migrants in this text.
