The photograph I chose to analyze is Dorothea Lange’s renowned portrait Migrant Mother, which is a Great Depression-era photograph featuring a migrant farmer, and is among the most famous photographs from this turbulent chapter of American history. The raw emotion in the mother’s face, paired with her body language and grimy appearance, captivates viewers; however, it is not the mother that makes this image so powerful to me, but rather, the turned away children framing their mother.

This kingdom, may possibly be France since he and his sister’s names were both influenced by the country which hints at a family connection and it being a place with a history of harsh punishments in its earlier years, similar to events which occur in the story (Griffin, M.

This kingdom is ruled by a semi-barbaric king with a judicial system that leads to a scenario in which a young princess has to make a complicated life changing decision of life and death for her imprisoned lover. The princess’s boyfriend has been accused of a crime for dating her since he isn’t a member of a prestigious family worthy of such a relationship.

The unique bond that exists between a mother and her child is practically unbreakable. A mother’s love is unselfish, unconditional, and knows no boundaries. Without the love and support of a mother, a child is like a ship lost at sea. The only way one can possibly repay their mother for all they have done is by giving her the same relentless love and affection that she have always given. In “The Lanyard”, Billy Collins implements juxtaposition, humorous comparisons, and metaphors to refrain the poet's message of love from lapsing into a cliché about parental love and convey the theme of a mother’s love.
