Similie Alliteration Onomatopoeia Heaney portrays his father as a “expert” who knows how to position the plough’s wing and “bright steel-pointed sock” so that the ideal sod(turf) can be rolled over without breaking, how to handle his sweaty crew with minimal e ort, how to determine his mission with unerring expertise. This stanza extends the a ection for the father and focuses on him. “Reins”(tied to the horses). The horses quickly and returned to plowing. Lines 11 and 12 talk about his father’s speci c movements. His squinting, narrowed eyes are visible as he watches the ground in front of him. “I” was stated in this stanza making it rst person. “Hobnailed” refers to the ruts in the eld created by the plow and plowman’s foot. He trips behind his while he was watching him work. The author doesn’t sound like he was that helpful, but “polished” refers to smooth and polished dirt. “Dipping and rising” indicates riding on his fathers back. The author looked ups to his father’s work and wants to plough as well since he admires him so much. Since “all he ever did was follow” his father across the eld, it seems he never physically learned how to do the job hands-on manner. It also seems that he lived in his fathers shadow according to his The author acknowledges that he was always in the way of his fathers work. With his “nuisance, tripping, falling, yapping,” over the plowed elds he wasn’t much help. He brought the reader back to the future by using “today” at the end of line 22, and gives us a clue that he has improved due to the word “but.” Now he is a grown man and his father is a old man who nds it di cult to keep up with his son. Which represents follower. The speaker began the poem by saying his father is a “horse-plough” which means we will be an important role in the poem and that he is a farmer. Plough is a British spelling for plow, which may mean they are from Britain. These lines refer to his father’s shoulders appear round from the rear, as sails do, since they are hunched and strained with the desire to stem the plow. And he usually has the strength to plow the ground The word “strained” refers that the horse works hard for his father and listens to his orders. He used to never keep up with his fathers work and now his father can’t keep up with his work This poem appeals to ethos because the author expresses his emotions and himself about his father. Stanza 5, relates to this rhetorical appeal because he showed emotion about how he wants to grow up and become like his father to plough. Analysis Paragraph The poem “Follower” by Seamus Heaney, re ects on the bond between a father and his son, moving from past to present and providing the reader’s insight into a son’s response to the passage of time and the aging of the same. As shown in the poem Heaney, showed how he idolized his father by the way he described his childhood. One piece of evidence that shows bond between a father and son is stanza 4 “In his broad shadow around the farm.” This indicates how he was always with his father even when he was working, even in his shadow. This is critical to the title because it proves that Heaney followed his father during his childhood and looked up to him as a child. Another example of the poem moving from past to present, is he brought the reader back to the future by using “today” at the end of line 22, and gives us a clue that he has improved due to the word “but.” Now he is a grown man and his father is an old man who nds it di cult to keep up with his son, which also represents followers. This is ironic because at rst the son couldn’t keep up with his father and at the end the father couldn’t keep up with his son. This is essential to the thesis since it provides evidence of how the author moved from past to present in the poem. The nal documentation of the poem is line 19 and line 22,23&24“All I ever did was follow,” “But now, It is my father who keeps stumbling, Behind me and will not go away.” This validates when the author was a child he was always following his father, but through time the father began to follow his son. This evidence is valuable to the thesis because it evidently proved a son’s response to the passage of time and aging by demonstrating the how through time parents and children’s roles change. In conclusion, this passage evidently focused on the connection between a father and a son, move from past to present and give the reader an overview into the reaction of a son to the passing of time and age.
