The Jaguar by Ted Hughes

Ted Hughes, a modern English poet, wrote various poems especially about animal’s imageries. One of his poems is “The Jaguar” which was inspired by a trip to the zoo. In this poem Ted Hughes describes the animals in the zoo and their different behaviour and attitudes to entrapment in their cages. He gives a series of vivid imageries in nearly every line and this makes it easy for us the readers to picture the scene.
The poem opens with a simple depressing and straight forward description of the apes “yawning” and adoring their fleas. By using long voweled words such as ‘yawn’ and ‘adore’ the poet manages to create a slow rhythm that creates two powerful images ...view middle of the document...

Hughes introduces us to a cage in front of which the crowd ‘ stands’ and, stares with awe and gets hypnotized at the spectacle of a jaguar. In fact the poet uses the simile “As a child at a dream “to help the reader imagine how the audience felt in the moment they saw the jaguar. In this poem “The Jaguar” there is a huge contrast between the first two stanzas were the animals are resigned and lifeless and the last three stanzas where the jaguar is restless and full of energy. Hughes managed to create a wonderful imagery of the flowing energy by using monosyllabic words such as “runs” and by using less punctuation so the rhythm is faster. In the last line of the third stanza the jaguar is running after his eyes, which are metaphorically described as “drills” because they are so piercing and striking. Between the third stanza and the fourth stanza there is a run on lines to create more the effect of the flow of energy.
In the first two lines of the fourth stanza the poet describes the short temper of the jaguar and its ignorance of suffering, by its own choice by using personifications. The poet also uses the alliteration of the letter “b” in the third verse “bang of blood in the brain” to create the noise that the jaguar makes with its paws when touching the ground. The alliteration of the “b” could also create the effect of the beating heart of the jaguar. In the last line of the stanza the poet outlines the action of the creature as it “spins” from the bars. There is also a metaphor in the last line “no cage for him” which indicates that the jaguar does not accept his entrapment but still behaves like a free...
