'The Manhunt' by Simon Armitage (analysis)

Simon Armitage explores and explains the themes, ideas, feelings and attitudes behind 'The Manhunt' and considers the language, structure and form of the poem linked to its central ideas. A reading of the poem is accompanied by a series of shots and visual images to illustrate the meanings, including documentary footage from current and past conflicts. Armitage examines the use of metaphor and structural devices he uses to explore the effects of conflict from personal rather than societal/ historical perspectives.
