    • POEM: Marked With D. by Tony Harrison (10/14/2007 3:30:00 PM)

      Harrison's sixteen line sonnet allows greater freedom and flexibility than the traditional fourteen lines. Marked with 'D' is an elegy for Harrison's father, who was a baker. Many of the images of the poem allude to this. The poem steadily progresses from sorrow to anger and like many of Harrison's poem deal with the division of the classes in English society.
