Discuss how Phoebe Grainer uses experiences of childbirth and maternity to explore Aboriginal connection to Country in her poem, “Boragee”.

You must include an annotation of Grainer’s poem in your submission.

In your written answer, you also need to refer to at least THREE different examples of poetic language/techniques from the poem, e.g. metaphor, imagery, symbolism. Try not to simply retell the story of the poem. Rather, try and show how the author is using specific kinds of language/techniques to explore her key ideas.

GETTING STARTED: Phoebe Grainer’s poem, “Boragee”, can be found in the Subject Reader in “Week 3 Readings”. There is also a sample question and answer, including annotation, in the Assessment 1 folder on vUWS. In addition, the folder contains Kate Fagan’s lecture pod guidance for the written component of this assessment.
