"Presents from my Aunts in Pakistan" is a poem by Moniza Alvi. [1] Alvi describes some gifts that she receives from her aunts. This is a metaphor for her Pakistani culture, and she says how much it clashes with her English culture. The poem is about the poet's struggle to find which culture she truly belongs to; Pakistani or English. It is included in Cluster 2, Poems from Different Cultures, of the AQA Anthology.
