Question 10

How does the poet present his problem of choice in the Fence?



Contrast is used in the poem to portray the poet’s inability to choose any of the several options available to him. Instances of the poet’s inability to make choices in the poem are established in the poem:
When/where the past and the future mingle;
Where truth and untruth struggle.
When time moves forwards and backwards
When the world changes and he remains as he is
When the need to do good conflicts with the action of doing good etc.

Many candidates attempted the question and their performance was fair.
