The poet highlights the theme of stereotypes by placing drear bull above eggs and milk. This is to effectively state that the sorry bull is on top of eggs and milk which emphasises on the vastness of gender stereotyping.The second theme is introduced which is artlessness and experience, They call him Bob as though perhaps you could reduce a monster with the charm of a amicable stimulate. Tone her is cynical. The bull has been given a homophile(a), friendly name which is a irrelevant name for the harsh animal. The key wrangle of the retell are monster and friendly. This is a very striking phone line in the midst of the idea of the name B ob being friendly, cheery and approachable, but in actual fact behind the cheery name lays a monster. The quote, at the threshold of his outhouse, is the turning point in the story.This is a symbolic quote that states you must go all over a line before starting a new life. In the poem a young girl is standing in the area between safety and danger. The line is significant as the pause creates a serial of tension building up to a sense of danger. The girls initial perceptions of the creature are conveyed in, At freshman only black, and the toothsome reek of him The girls sensory impressions of the bull are that the formulate black represents danger. The words hot reek represents the smell and stench of the bull.Her over all sensory impression is the smell of the bulls pungent aroma that is its inborn smell and the limited sight gives her a sense of the unknown danger.

She runs ancient a group of boys.Here the writer links the bull and the boys together by the use of harsh sound effects. It is important that this link is made as it makes a direct comparison between the bulls aggression and the boys cruelty. It highlights that they both voice the same characteristics. Finally, the girls attention is redirected to the parlous state of the eggs and milk, due to the flight, panicked of the eggs shattering While shes too busy defend the eggs it shows the reader that females are shelterive towards anything precious.In the girls eyes the eggs and milk are precious, and she wants to protect them from any harm. in case the milk should loss The precarious position of the milk is highlighted in the small hands of a weak girl, who has been charged with the responsibility of looking after the eggs and milk.
