« Poetry is the voice of spirit and imagination and all that is potential, as well as of the healing benevolence that used to be the privilege of the gods » Ted Hughes

You don’t ‘explain’ Poetry – You cannot make mistakes when you study a poem !

Listen to the voice of the poet and analyse with your own knowledge, comment with your own reactions and feelings. Your teacher and classmates will provide for additionnal views if needed.

Here is a commentary on Ted Hughes’s poem The Thought Fox, by a native speaker from one of my Terminales. We are grateful she has kindly accepted to lend her work for you to take as an example both for the structure of her commentary and the quality of her spoken English. Enjoy !


THINK by yourself to express your own SELF. There is no right or wrong answer.

There is the Word and the Word is There.

Poetry is Freedom in action.
