Here's the prompt: Read carefully the poem Siren Song by Margaret Atwood. Write an essay analyzing how Atwood's use of literary techniques, poetic devices, and allusion develop the complex meanings that are pleasant in the poem.

  Resolved Question: Please help analyse the
My child in the smoke of the fire playing at barbarism, the burst meat dripping down her chin, soot smearing her cheek and her hair infested with twigs, under a midsummer-leafed tree in the rain, the shelter of poles and canvas down the road if needed: This could be where we end up, learning the minimal with maybe no tree, no rain, no shelter, no roast carcasses of animals to renew us at a time when language will shrink to the word hunger and the word none. Mist lifts from the warm lake hit by the cold drizzle: too much dust in the stratosphere this year, they say. Unseasonal. Here comes the ice, here comes something, we can all feel it like a breath, a footstep, here comes nothing with its calm eye of fire. What we're having right now is a cookout, sausages on peeled sticks. The blades of grass are still with us. My daughter forages, grace plumps the dusty berries, two or three hot and squashed in her fist. So far we do it for fun. So far is where we've gone and no farther.

  Resolved Question: Please help me interpret
Postcards by Margaret Atwood I'm thinking about you. What else can I say? The palm trees on the reverse are a delusion; so is the pink sand. What we have are the usual fractured coke bottles and the smell of backed-up drains, too sweet, like a mango on the verge of rot, which we have also. The air clear sweat, mosquitoes & their tracks; birds & elusive. Time comes in waves here, a sickness, one day after the other rolling on; I move up, it's called awake, then down into the uneasy nights but never forward. The roosters crow for hours before dawn, and a prodded child howls & howls on the pocked road to school. In the hold with the baggage there are two prisoners, their heads shaved by bayonets, & ten crates of queasy chicks. Each spring there's race of cripples, from the store to the church. This is the sort of junk I carry with me; and a clipping about democracy from the local paper. Outside the window they're building the damn hotel, nail by nail, someone's crumbling dream. A universe that includes you can't be all bad, but does it? At this distance you're a mirage, a glossy image fixed in the posture of the last time I saw you. Turn you over, there's the place for the address. Wish you were here. Love comes in waves like the ocean, a sickness which goes on & on, a hollow cave in the head, filling & pounding, a kicked ear. I love this poem. I'm going to write my poetry assessment commentary on it, but I have a few questions... In the last two lines of the first stanza, what does "The air clear sweat, mosquitoes & their tracks; birds & elusive" mean? And why does Atwood use & signs instead of the actual word "and"? In the second stanza, I don't understand the whole "In the hold with the baggage there are two prisoners, their heads shaved by bayonets, & ten crates of queasy chicks. Each spring there's a race of cripples, from the store to the church" part.... And lastly, in the third stanza, what does the hotel represent? Thank you ^^
