Modelled Paragraph:
Duffy uses a listing structure in the poem ‘The Virgin’s
Memo’ to convey a woman’s representation of creation and
their value in society. “Maybe not rats son” The uncertainty
in the language shows a hesitancy suggesting the lack of
power held by women, not only in potentially the modern
day, but throughout history. It also presents a stereotype as
the Virgin Mary’s requests items such as rats, snakes and
spiders to be eliminated from the world and creatures such
as the unicorn to remain. The fact that this isn’t the case
portrays the idea that woman are not valued or listened to.
The long list and use of the phrase “son” gives the
impression that the list is continuous and boring and seems
like a list of chores set by a mother. The reader is
overwhelmed by the negativity and ugly nature of the
language and ideas used and leads them to link this to
society
itself in the way that women are treated.
