As I don't speak the native language of my homeland, I can only learn about the origins of my culture from what I can see.
Norman Mac Caig's Aunt Julia, like his mother, came from the Isle of Harris and had Gaelic as a first language.
Norman, like the majority of his generation, spoke English.
Firstly; Trying to identify two of the main concerns / ideas from the first two stanzas.
I really appreciate any help as english is not my first language and I am really struggling with this poem. I studied Nat5 English last year and got 38/40 on that Critical Reading paper (the one with the essay and Mac Caig questions), and an A overall.
Worth reading “Return to Scalpay” - written in September 1972 and published in 1974 - which describes a visit Mac Caig made to the island in the summer of 1970.
Scalpay in the 1930’s - the period the poem describes - was an island whose natural language was Gaelic.
"very loud abd very fast" doubles as word choice, so you can use that too. Sorry when I first posted it read as a single block of text.
I had to reformat to make the post readable and understandable.
I am studying Mac Caig again for Higher, so my notes and annotations may be a little more detailed than required for Nat5.
The "main ideas and concerns" basically means theme.
