To analyse 'Carnival Jumbie'
In this lesson, we will read 'Carnival Jumbie' and listen to a reading by John Lyons from CLPE. We will learn about the context and then analyse the poem's structure, language, themes and tone. Please note this lesson covers slavery and enslaved people. If this is a sensitive topic for your child then please make sure they are adequately supervised.
