Okay, she isn't neccessarily abusing her son. I am saying this because I do
something similair with my own. When he misbehaves, I set aside time to
find an activity we both enjoy, such as dancing. She may just be throwing
him in the air and because he bunches up like a ball she is unable to catch
him. What if she is making the best time with her son as opposed to beating
the crap out of him as you are suggesting???

I am a Gcse student and we are doiing this peom in english at the moment
and it is for course work we have read into it alot and i can tell any one
who is interested that Ann Saxton abused her own children when her husband
was away and also that she commited suicide ater the 3rd or 4th attempt
P.S and one who is interested in these type of poems look up Seamus Heaney

I personally thought that the symbolism of the rose (full of thorns) and
the welts that the child gets from the thrashing were brought across. I
think the music that is played is used to prevent neighbors from hearing
the cries of the child. It also show how violent the mother thrashes the
child over minor mistakes that children are prone to make.
Also it shows how sometimes societies legal safety nets are unable to
