When conceptualising the notion of a ‘constellation’, many definitions arise as to what the term represents and the ways to which it possesses a metaphorical significance. Such queries emerge throughout the duration of the contemporary theatre piece suitably entitled ‘Constellations’, written by English playwright Nick Payne, who effectively initiates controversy by implicitly alluding towards the perplexing concepts of parallel universes, nonlinear and possible infinite expanses of time, as well as the importance of individual choices and their relationship with the concept of fate/destiny. This exploitation of the power of subliminal manipulation is prevalent in most modern theatre as dramatic meaning is more effectively conveyed and
There were also reported that on occasions Gardiner's lover Catherine Browne had been participating in robberies alongside 'The Darkie' disguised in men's apparel. Consequently, all reports, however, continued to state that the bushrangers 'can be identified'. Although many of the correspondents in the country areas where the offences had occurred either knew of or were well informed as to who the perpetrators were they appeared reluctant to name them, either as a way of assisting the police by not alerting the criminals or their friends as well as protecting themselves against possible reprisals. Therefore, in most instances, as with the NSW police gazettes, descriptions of the assailants were only printed in newspapers by correspondents as

The novel The Secret River written by Kate Grenville and the film One Night the Moon directed by Rachael Perkins both use conventional features such as symbolism, characterisation and features particular to the text type to highlight the differing views between Europeans and Aborigines over land, conflict and tragedy which ensues due to these differing attitudes. Grenville portrays the European society eager for a fresh start in Australia, but conflict with the traditional land owners is ongoing.

In Carol Ann Duffy’s “Little Red Cap,” taken from her collection The Worlds Wife, Duffy incorporates her feminist views on life to help develop Red-Cap’s character into an independent woman. In her work, Duffy intends to illuminate for the audience that woman are more powerful than they are perceived by society. In the poem, she writes about a young girl at the peak of her childhood, who is about to enter into the next phase of her life. The young, inexperienced girl describes the beginning of her transformation into adulthood after losing her innocence to “The Wolf.” The loss of her innocence contributes to the realization that she no longer needs an old, no good wolf. She gains the courage and reflects on how her life changes dramatically after her departure from the wolf. The poem “Little Red-Cap," written in The World’s Wife, closely relates to certain aspects of the original fairy tales written by The Grimm Brother and Charles Perrault. Duffy’s version of “Little Red Cap” is a rewrite of the original fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood.” Duffy incorporates her strong feminist views by allowing Red-Cap to initiate her encounter with the wolf and to use him for gaining knowledge for her career and sexual desires. These aspects contribute to the development of Red-Cap’s character into a more independent woman to contradict the oppression of women in the past and present generations, and allowing her to offer suggestions for women in the future.
