Gwen Harwood’s poetry is very powerful for its ability to question the social conventions of its time, positioning the reader to see things in new ways. During the 1960’s, a wave of feminism swept across Australian society, challenging the dominant patriarchal ideologies of the time. Gwen Harwood’s poems ‘Burning Sappho’ and ‘Suburban Sonnet’ are two texts that challenge the dominant image of the happy, gentle, but ultimately subservient housewife. Instead, ‘Burning Sappho’ is powerful in constructing the mother as violent to reject the restraints placed on her by society, whilst Suburban Sonnet addresses the mental impact of the female gender’s confinement to the maternal and domestic sphere. Harwood employs a range of language and
Last June in 2001, a 37-year-old lady by the name of Andrea Yates, was arrested for killing her five children. Most people like me would agree that she was sane, and the death penalty would have been the right punishment for Mrs. Andrea Yates.
"When I was little I would think of ways to kill my daddy." [P.1], says eleven-year-old Ellen. Thus the young narrator begins her life-story, in the process painting an extraordinary self-portrait. “Ellen Foster” is a powerful story of a young girl growing up in a burdensome world. As one reads this work presented by Kaye Gibbons, a chill runs down their back. Ellen, the main character is faced with a hard life dealing with endless losses, with the deaths of both her parents and her grandmother being included. Why would one get a chill you wonder? This individual has thoughts and feelings that many have never experienced and cannot express. Ellen is merely a child no older then the age of ten but if not knowing this fact,
All artists are influenced by the culture they are from. Our experiences and the environment in which we were raised shapes us, and thus the works we produce as artists. This essay will discuss, compare and contrast two artists from different cultures, and their ceramic artworks, with a focus on how their cultural background has influenced their art. The artists that will be discussed are Janet Fieldhouse, who is influenced by her Torres Strait Islander heritage and Aboriginal artist Dr. Thancoupie Gloria Fletcher.
Opportunities for an individual to develop understanding of themselves stem from the experiences attained on their journey through life. The elements which contribute to life are explored throughout Gwen Harwood’s poems, At Mornington and Mother Who Gave Me Life, where the recollection of various events are presented as influences on the individual’s perception of the continuity of life. Both poems examine the connections between people and death in relation to personal connections with the persona’s father or mother. By encompassing aspects of human nature and life’s journey, Harwood addresses memories and relationships which contribute to one’s awareness of life.
There are environmental and internal factors that could have an impact on a student’s behavior. Students with challenging behaviors are communicating to their teachers that their needs are not being met and something is not right. This communication is often in the form of problem behaviors.
Kitson was born in Sydney in 1987 and attended the National Art School, Sydney. From there she was offered a artist residency in China which further developed her curiosity in the art of ceramic making and is now where she practices her art making; half her time is spent in Jingdezhen learning
I have chose to tell the story, and achievements of well renown artist Peter Morgan. Peter morgan is 33 years old. He grew up in Abingdon, Va with his parents Ed, and Helen Morgan. Peter graduated from Abingdon high school in 1996. Peter had never taken a ceramics class until his sophomore year in college.

He also received his Master of Fine Arts degree at Alfred University
I nominate Heather Brewer as the GREATEST person in the world because she is trying to just be herself in this world of pure hatred and darkness. She is a mother to two kids and married to Paul Brewer who accepts her for who she is. Now she goes by Zac Brewer and has come out as a gay man. I look up to her as a good role model for kids these days who are trying to find their true selves. When they chose they’re families and friends are okay with it or are thrown away for their choices. Zac also now goes by the pronouns he/him/his indicating that he has made his final step into another world. Zac is well known for the creeptastic books that he has written for all of his little ‘minions’ so he calls his fans. Nine years ago he found himself as a transgender, but before all that he was deeply depressed and had no clue why. Then when it all changed he finally found who he truly came to life. He has always told his fans ‘minions’, “Own your weird. Embrace who you are, and whoever you are, you are
Heather Hoodhood has strong beliefs, she is also independent, she says a lot sarcasm, and she is determined. Heather learns that you can’t just walk away from her family and that she should listen to them instead of blocking them out like Holling.
I’m sitting at my computer, ignoring pages of economics homework and mugs of cold tea now strewn about my desk, as I search for a direction to go with my life. Such was was my predicament several months ago. It’s undeniable that I’m an artist, hard and true, for a pencil found its way into my hand as a child, and no desire of mine nor of the universe ever tempted it to pry away. Throughout my earliest years and memories, I maneuvered with graphite, paint, and crayon every adventure that I ever dreamt of pursuing. Oh, I was a resilient child, as well, who refused to take part in any art class at school or as an extracurricular for an abundance of years, as I was invariably convinced that I could learn all I wished on my own accord! Consequently,
1.) The author, Heather Booth, realizes a moment of change after she sees her old friend Billy in an art shop, where he works. She comes right out and says to the reader, “Seeing Billy working as a cashier in that art shop has led me to look at success in a new way”(Booth 25). She had been grown in a household that always thought ones success came from going to college and getting a well paid job. I think the way Booth comes right out and states her realization adds effect to the story. The effect of coming out and starting her realization allows for the reader to understand everything she is noticing about her point of view. She makes it very clear for the reader what she believed in opposed to now about the topic of success within an individual.
Shawn Booth and Kaitlyn Bristowe are still going strong after meeting on The Bachelorette.
