Hello, my name is Rahel and my name is Vivian. Today we are presenting and analysing the poem ‘In the Park’ by Gwen Harwood. Our visual presentation is in the form of a set photographs, this is called expectations versus reality. We named our set of photographs this because we believe it relates to the poem because through the words written we can sense that the mother loathes the reality she is living in, that the expectations she had for herself were not achieved. The mother yearns for the life she could have had and probably dreams about it every so often, so we created a snapshot of the alternative reality she craves through these photos.
By saying that, “Sometimes when you fall off your horse, you just don’t want to get right back on.” (Smiley 1), the author sets up a scenario where because the girl is scared of getting hurled off of her horse again, she finds comfort in a special horse that she holds near to her heart. Smiley uses the relationship between the girl and her horse to give a reason for why the girl has hope. In present day, the horse had been sold in exchange for money (Smiley 2). The second part of the sentence refers back to her love of the horse which, ultimately, explains her mentality of wanting to try again. This, being the last sentence of the story, returns to the idea that the horse is what keeps her from giving up.

While Dee is asking for the quilts, her mom remembers a time when she offered Dee the quilts before leaving and she replied ," They were old-fashioned, out of style"(Walker 64).

Later in the story, Maggie becomes upset when Dee was about to take the quilts. The author illustrates Maggie putting snuff in her bottom lip giving ," her face a kind of dopey, hangdog look"(Walker 65). This exemplifies to the readers that through the mother's eyes, Maggie was so extremely upset that Dee was once again going to win by taking the quilts because Maggie truly understands the meaning of the quilts and deserves to not be defeated by Dee.

This poem employs diction and varying points of view to emphasize the lack of understanding between the two characters, while symbols and figurative comparisons express their mutual love; this poem analyzes the loving, yet dysfunctional relationship
