Poetic effect is achieved in the poem through understatement and asides. Discuss this with examples.
The poetic effect is definitely achieved through understatement and asides. The port’s focus is not on the family alone. His prime focus is on the things that are happening in nature around them and the things that are present there. To prove so we may take up the mention of the broken window panes made by the poet. This makes us realize that even though the window panes may not seem to be important, they are significant for the poem and its subject.
The other aspect of subtlety is that the husband claims that ‘the man she loves who happens to be me’. This means that though he is ignoring the things that she’s uttering, he is also sure that she loves him. And this makes him gladly accept the fact that her lady is always correct.
