Hi there Riley!
I enjoyed your post about this weeks poems and your analysis of the meaning behind them. I like the fact that you ventured to state that female authors and poets were a driving force behind women’s movements as influential women were in fact very empowering for other women at the time in many ways. I have to disagree however with your statement that there was not much change for women throughout the 20th century; this was the most rapid time for change for women as it includes all the years between 1901 and 2000 in which time so many changes occurred- in fact, women in Australia got the vote in the very early years of the 20th century! I also enjoyed your analysis of “The Orange Tree” as your insight into the poem contrasting the perspectives of Aboriginal and white people as I only thought about the different perspectives of individuals and society- loved your fresh take on it!
Keep up the awesome work 🙂
