The poem “Tractor” is written by Ted Hughes is literally about a tractor. The season is winter and the man is trying to start the tractor but is unable to do so because of the weather. Eventually, the man is able to start the tractor. However, while reading it further, this poem seems to be telling us that with determination, man can overcome many problems no matter how tough the problem is, using nature as a form of trouble to humans. Moreover, it also tells us that the journey to solving the problem is difficult. This poem is in nine stanzas, where the first four stanzas describe the process of starting up the tractor while the last five stanzas, describe how the tractor finally starts up and rejoices. The poet personifies the tractor
This text response will be looking the comparison of the two poems, ‘Drifters’ by Bruce Dawe, And ‘In the park’ by Gwen Harwood under the name of Walter Lehmann. Drifters is about a seemingly constantly moving family, it describes the process the family will go through leaving their newest home. In the park is about a seemingly single mother raising her children, it describes the mother sitting in the park with her children when a previous lover comes by and talks about the children. With in each poem, the form and structure, language techniques and the tone and message will be analysed and compared with the other to gather a grater understanding of the Australian voice.
Masculine’s definition is stereotypically twisted. The myth and reality of the cowboy shaped today’s definition of masculinity because they have this high and strong structure they need to uphold. Masculinity is having the traditional acts as a man, such as being strong and secure. In today’s world man and women have two different mindsets. Even though we are all humans, our gender defines the way we should act due to how society makes it. The myth has affected males physically, emotionally and mentally. The idea is that they are supposed to act accordingly. In reality, everyone wants to grow up differently, so why would they be forced to act/be a certain way?
The Day the Cowboy’s Quit takes place during the 1880’s and revolves around the character, Hugh Hitchcock. “Hitch” can only be described as a man of his word, perhaps even to a fault. He enjoys simple pleasures, and idealizes the cowboy lifestyle. Hitch works for the W Ranch, for a rancher named Charlie Waide, to whom he looks up to as a sort of father-figure. At Charlie’s ranch, Hitch and the other cowboys are free to own their own cattle and brand them as such, so long as they don’t steal from him or any of the other ranchers. However, not all ranchers see fit the hands-off approach Charlie takes with his men. Since the W Ranch is only expanding its horizons, the cowboys, and Hitch, although optimistic, and faithful in Charlie, see this free way of life coming to an end. Soon enough, big ranch owners try to force their ways upon the W Ranch, and Charlie resists, that is, until one of his own is found to have stolen cattle. Charlie’s trust in his men falters, and he conforms to the business oriented ways of the other ranchers. Upon word of this, the

Late, A Cowboy Song directed by Jane Barnette was an absolute thrill to experience. Everything from each of the actors’ performances to the intimacy of the stage left me in a sense of awe. It was all done so incredibly well. Choosing two specific actors to write this critique for was somewhat difficult given that there were only three cast members in the entire play and each one of them did an absolutely amazing job. The two that I did end up giving the most attention to were Jake Gillespie and Elsa Bernauer, Crick and Mary respectively. Throughout the play I watched both of these two to see exactly how they became their characters and whether there were any things that needed work. Let’s just dive into Jake Gillespie’s performance.
In Natasha Trethewey’s poetry collection Native Guard, the reader is exposed to the story of Trethewey’s growing up in the southern United States and the tragedy which she encountered during her younger years, in addition to her experiences with prejudice and to issues surrounding prejudice within the society she is living in. Throughout this work, Trethewey often refers to graves and provides compelling imagery regarding the burial of the dead. Within Trethewey’s work, the recurring imagery surrounding graves evolves from the graves simply serving as a personal reminder of the past, to a statement on the collective memory of society and comments on how Trethewey is troubled with what society has forgotten as it signifies a willingness to overlook the dehumanization of a large group of people.
District 12 is a poverty incarnate. As plumes of ashen grey smoke pollute the sky, the monotonous sound of pickaxes bang sullenly against ghastly grey stone rings throughout the streets of District 12. Homeless men and women line the streets, laying against the walls of run down buildings with nothing but the tattered clothes on their back to shelter them from the vicious frost biting away at their flesh. Drunkards and miners drag their feet across the cracked and faded pavement, some wandering aimlessly in the hopes they might discover a better life, whilst others head towards the Hob, a makeshift agora were the denizens of District 12 attempt to trade goods and services. The sun hides behind an infinite expanse of grey clouds that blanket
Ponyo, ponyo, ponyo, fishy in the sea tiny little fishy, who could you really be? Ponyo, ponyo, ponyo, magic set's you free; oh she's a little girl with a round tummy. tip-tippie-toe, jump-jump and hop, now that I've got my legs, I cannot stop pat-pattie-pat waving 'hello!' come and hold
As the moon sets its peak, Coyotes sit and cry You cannot begin to feel, The way they do when loved ones die Hunger, disease, many ways Fighting it for many days Newborns suffer in pain As the drought drips none with rain The hot sun has killed most life On this cursed hill, Has the Lord took a
Traditions and cultures influence literature in various ways. Same subjects are approached differently because of the diverse backgrounds of each individual authors. Such as how the Native Americans traditions approach the natural world differently than English traditions. The Native Americans believe themselves to be part of nature, whereas other traditions thought otherwise. Thus, in the Native American poems, nature is praised and connected to, whereas, in the English traditions, the poets seem to be apart from nature.
The heat beckons us. Daring us. Come closer. Even more. Some step forward, willingly. An ancient sacrifice, laying down at it's feet. A burnt offering, for the primordial fire. The sparks sputter and fly, thick smoke fills your lungs. And finally, the flame enters in. Consuming you, Burning you, Daring to defeat you. Until finally, it does. Only when, you have been fully penetrated, and
The True American Cowboy As the twentieth century approached, America was experiencing a time of considerable expansion. All eyes were looking for ways to make the United States a larger, more powerful, and more efficient country. Because of this wave in American society, there was no movement given more devotion
Dumont’s use of the lyric poem helps her affective involvement inside the poetry, as it allows her to rouse scenes and characters with no need to set them within a completely described narrative framework; it also allows her to stay at period on pics, emotions, moods, and emotions with out accomplishing a neat feel of closure. The poem "lucky stars," for example, meditates on the speaker’s feelings while she is being driven home in the dark by an older brother. Although the speaker refers briefly to an outside world — "many times I am taken back / to my parents in that logging camp" (17); "a family of ten" (17); "the dark wood ahead" (18) — the poem focuses on the brother and the protection he provides to his younger sister. The brother is affectionately fashioned into a mother duck, "his hair slicked back, a ducktail" (17), in whose "nest of blankets and pillows" (17) the speaker feels safe and protected. This metaphor extends throughout the poem, creating a mood of lightness, warmth, and innocence mirrored by "those big-eyed stars / overhead" (17) and "our high beams
