During his time, the poet has witnessed the era of Irish nationalist terrorism, which began in the s. This conflict took place when the minority population of Catholics was dominated, discriminated, and also harassed by the Protestant majority.

During the mids, the groups of Irish nationalist had also started violent attacks to make the UK government build an independent region of Britain. The poem Belfast Confetti derives its name from the large ship constructing rivets as well as all the other metals, which were used by the Protestants for the violent attacks against the Catholics.

Dharmender is a writer by passion, and a lawyer by profession. Dharmender is awesomely passionate about Indian and English literature, and continuously read poems of many different poets. First let me tell you that this is not a ridiculous analysis. You read what I made you read through my reading and understanding of this poem.

In all, the whole poem is an extended metaphor for the way that violent conflict destroys language. I have never heard this term before. I am sorry but I have to say this is a ridiculous analysis of the poem. I do not feel pain or terror from hyphens or asterix. So I would totally disagree with the author. Please log in again.
