Smith further argues that indigenous people survived and managed the land well; consequently modern Australia should try and get indigenous people to get them to feel like they belong in our country Australia. The sense of nurture is included in this article by smith when he uses the words fragile, nurtured and carefully managing. The effect of the article by Smith when the reader reads the article it makes them feel that the land belongs to no one when smith argued the words “terra Nullius.”
I agree with Karl Shapiro’s statement: “The poet really does see the world differently, and everything in it. He does no deliberately go into training to sharpen his senses; he is a poet because his senses are naturally open and vitally sensitive. But what the poet sees with his always new vision is not what is " imaginary"; he sees what others have forgotten how to see."
The concept of inequality is a crucial part of Oodgeroo Noonuccal’s poem ‘An Appeal’. The nation (Australia) is constantly looking for a person/group of people to follow. The underprivileged are stuck in the midst and subsequently, they feel a sense of inequality. Noonuccal accentuates the auditory effect of the underprivileged, in an attempt to evoke a depressing or compassionate feeling towards them from the reader through the use of imagery in the ‘underprivileged call’. The use of personification in ‘unfriendly doors’ displays how the statesman can force the ‘unfriendly doors’ to groups of people in which he dislikes, which shows how mean and unfriendly Australians can be.
Conceptions of exploit and exposibility is constant in his text as he verbally expresses the truth, or what the public can receive. The poem, Homecoming, communicates the horrible aftermaths of war, categorically the Vietnam war and the effects on Australia, and our adolescence. Homecoming prospers in addressing the quandaries that the regime do not addressed in the promotional posters and propaganda spoon victualed to society, which we victual up expeditiously. Dawe, through this poem was to make us cognisant about the quandaries of war. On the Death of Ronald Ryan, alternatively was rather a homage to the last man executed in Australia, rather than being an exposing piece of text, though it does contain aspects that do explicate the powerlessness of society and the authentic power of the regime. His poems are a rather impactful pieces, which do leave the reader with some cognisance of a marginally dystopian regime, one that is a dehumanising, yet scarcely inevitably ineluctable. Dehumanising as the regime may seem, Dawe makes us cognisant on the painful realities that circumvent the history and society itself. Homecoming fixated on the dehumanising treatment the war heroes received, On the Death of Ronald Ryan highlighted the corrupt regime at the time, accentuated the erroneous contentment of an
Wordsworth and Muir express their fascination with nature using imagery and mood. In “Calypso Borealis”, John Muir states that he finds himself “glorying in the fresh cool beauty and charm of the bog and meadow heathworts, grasses, carices, ferns, mosses, liverworts displayed in boundless profusion” (Muir). The words “boundless profusion” appeals to the sense of sight and helps us imagine the scene and all the bountiful natural beauty of the place. The image shows Muir’s relationship with nature because it demonstrates his overwhelming, nearly spiritual, experience with nature. In the poem “I wandered lonely as a cloud”, Wordsworth also uses imagery to expresses a similar experience. In the first stanza he describes “A host, of golden daffodils; /beside the lake, beneath the trees, /Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.” (Wordsworth Ln 4-6). Words such as “host”, “golden”, “Fluttering” and “dancing”, all appeals to the reader’s sense of sight, hearing, and smell. It brings us into the scene. These images show Wordsworth’s relationship with nature because he personifies this flower allowing him to relate it and become one with nature.
Throughout the course of a given year, approximately 5.2 million people are affected by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Nearly 7.8% of the United States population will experience PTSD in their lifetime, and 3.6% of adults ages eighteen to fifty-four will experience PTSD (“What is PTSD?”). Henry is one of these people. Using symbolism and foreshadowing within the story, “The Red Convertible” by Louise Erdrich portrays a few motifs throughout the story and these include the bond of brotherhood, sacrifice, and the effects of war.
The poem My Mother The Land by Phill Moncrieff poetically describes the struggles the aboriginal people faced at the hands of the European people and colonisation throughout history. The fact that the author based the poem on accurate historical events adds to the authenticity of representations and engages the reader in an emotional journey with the struggles the aboriginal people faced with the somewhat loss of their country, culture, identity, people and place. The author uses a variety of language features and text structures to create this view point, for instance the author uses several language features and text structures throughout verse one to demonstrate the loss of culture and people.
Gwen Harwood’s poems ‘At Mornington’ and ‘The Violets’ mirror ideas of circulatory nature of life and relationships between contrasting themes. Through images and references to certain motifs, two distinct stories and journeys are reflected, ‘At Mornington’s’ journey of life and death, and ‘The Violets’ story of the squandering of opportunities. The portrayal of certain voices and the displaying of contrasting ideas, the two poems have both similar and dissimilar aspects.
In his collection of poems Broken Teeth, author Tony Birch explores Melbourne’s past from British Settlement to the present day. Within his poems “‘My Words’, Beruk (Ngamajet) -1835”, “Beruk Watches Melbourne from the Sky -1945” and “Visiting”, Birch creates a connected image of the city’s past through exploring snapshots of different time periods within Melbourne’s rich, diverse history. Birch’s poems also identify the strong links between the city’s past and its present, reviving the strong historical and cultural factors that influenced Melbourne’s creation.
The tomb of the Red Queen was discovered in 1994 in Chiapas, Mexico, where it had lain untouched for thirteen centuries (Discovery Channel, 2005). Her tomb is located within the complex containing the Temple of the Inscriptions at Palenque (Tiesler, 2004, p. 82). Temple XIII, the structure that houses it, stands to the right of the Temple of the Inscriptions, where Pacal II was buried with very similar funerary details, including an abundance of the red pigment cinnabar (mercury sulfide), which was applied to the skin in layers and the placement of their remains in the only limestone sarcophagi found within the mayan cities to date (Discovery Channel, 2005). The tomb is located at the center of the temple. The flesh of the Red Queen’s body, quite possibly Pacal II’s wife Tz’ak-b’u Ajaw (Tiesler, 2004, p. 82) had decomposed, leaving only her skeleton, in what is believed to be her original resting place. Regardless of her relationship to Pacal II, the placement of her
Competitiveness. Violence. Cruelty. What might come to mind when thinking of these words? Some might say aggression, abuse, or masculinity. But, what if I said that those words could be used to describe a woman. Studies show that “women are engaged in a competition of their own, aggressively jockeying for position in a battle to secure a suitable mate.” This view can be seen in many examples, but one example in particular is the novel Rebecca, by Daphne Du Maurier. Daphne du maurier creates a story where two women have a rivalry against each other. The trick to this rivalry is that one of the women is dead. Rebecca is a spirit who only lives in the mind of the narrator, Mrs. De Winter. Mrs. De Winter allows Rebecca to influence her life decisions in many ways. Even though Rebecca never walks through the door and makes an appearance, she is one of the main characters who affects every other person in the novel.
Maggie Nelson condemns the media’s erotic interest in violence done to women. Her novel, The Red Parts, is as much of an explanation of what happened at the trial for her aunt, Jane, as it is commentary of the perverse enjoyment people have for learning of these cases on TV. When going over her aunt’s case, Nelson tries to describe what occurred truthfully and objectively, avoiding erotic descriptors as they are disrespectful to Jane and all the women who shared a similar fate.
