    Black Swan Green by David Mitchell is a beautiful book that left me thinking ‘damn, I wish I’d written that!’. I could relate a lot to the story of thirteen-year-old Jason who has a stammer, secretly writes poetry, has an older sister and dysfunctional parents/5(). In his metalwork class, Jason seeks retribution on Neal Brose by taking Neal's number cruncher – a costly one – and pounding it in a tight clamp. Mr. Nixon, the director, questions Jason, inquiring as to whether his conduct is the aftereffect of his dad losing his position (at the day of the jubilee, in the past section).

      Black Swan Green tracks a single year in what is, for thirteen-year-old Jason Taylor, the sleepiest village in muddiest Worcestershire in a dying Cold War England, But the thirteen chapters, each a short story in its own right, create an exquisitely observed 4/4(). The two short stories “Black Swan Green” written by David Mitchell and “Letters To A Young Poet” by Rainer Maria Rilke both share a common central idea. In both stories, there is a mentee looking for advice from their mentors. The mentees have a passion for poetry and are aspiring poets.

    1- “Often I think boys don’t become men. Boys just get papier-mâchéd inside a man’s mask. Sometimes you can tell the boy is still in there.” () 2 – “Games and sports aren’t about taking part or even about winning. Games and sports’re really about humiliating your enemies.” (8) 3 – . From award-winning writer David Mitchell comes a sinewy, meditative novel of boyhood on the cusp of adulthood and the old on the cusp of the new. Black Swan Green tracks a single year in what is, for year-old Jason Taylor, the sleepiest village in muddiest Worcestershire in dying Cold War England,
