Affect vs emotion
Affectation

Socially constructed
Cultural social political structures
Contextual
Affect
Potential for experiences, different to individuals
Wider
Immediate emotional response can hinder our engagement
I.e. I hate this it’s boring, can stop you for digging in and exploring more

Mitchell’s death, the difficulties
Juxtaposition of monotonous tone and the sharpness and immediateness of needles
No eye contact, harder to relate
Incantation tone. Chanting. We recognise it as way of speaking about death and soul

Types of difficulty
Literal (face value) e.g. Visual things
Political connotations

In poetry difficulties might be:
Textual
Contextual
Narrative
Interpretive

Describing something as controversial limits interpretations of it
