Can you please give me your opinion on the poem Amulet by Ted Hughes. i have to write a literary analysis on this poem but i have to include the opinion of at least three other people and compare how my opinion differs with their opinion. So i need to know what other people think and how they interpret it. thank you!!!

    I think it's fascinating to see how the poet set this poem up, alternating "the wolf's" something with whatever's in the line before -- in just about every line. Interesting construction pattern here.

    From this structure and from the content, it is quite clear that he is portraying the wolf's predatory nature as an integral part of nature.

    What do you think?
