By nature, ultimately, the world is a game of "survival of the fittest."

Distinguished poet and professor of English literature Scanned Poem "For Julia, In the Deep Water" The instructor we hire
because she does not love you
Leads you into the deep water,
The deep end
Where the water is darker—
Her open, encouraging arms
That never get nearer
Are merciless for your sake.

You will dream this water always
Where nothing draws nearer,
Wasting your valuable breath
You will scream for your mother—
Only your mother is drowning
Forever in the thin air
Down at the deep end.
She is doing nothing,
She never did anything harder.
And I am beside her.

I am beside her in this imagination.
We are waiting
Where the water is darker.
You are over your head,
Screaming, you are learning
Your way toward us,
You are learning how
In the helpless water
It is with our skill
We live in what kills us. Diction: Syntax: The instructor we hire

between encouraging and merciless
-for one's sake-although it may hurt now, it will benefit one in the long run POV of Mother-
fighting in her position to be
helpless to her child POV of Father-
"tough love" Gaining experiences
and learning lessons
through pain/suffering Contradiction between live & kill- irony because one cannot live after being killed.
-the cruelty of society alone, with no
direct guidance The instructor we hire
because she does not love you
Leads you into the deep water,
The deep end
Where the water is darker—
Her open, encouraging arms
That never get nearer
Are merciless for your sake.

We live in what kills us. Earth Day, 1970 Women's
Movements HIPPIES (1970s) Overall ironic: not protecting their own child The images of parents are generally portrayed as loving and caring, willing to do anything for their children's success and happiness. Sometimes, that's not the case. The harsh society may require parents to enact "cruel" treatments
against their children--letting them fall and get back up on their own--in order for them to mature. Author believes that the world is generally cruel and cold. You cannot count on it to show mercy for you, so you have to be tough on your own. Shortness of
breath Choppy, abrupt
fragments Trouble Author worked at young age & struggled: "So that to succeed was sometimes to fail..." In life, when one falls, the point where they get back up is the point of their success. With a push here and a shove there, we learn to swim for ourselves. Kiddie pool

Adult pool Key:
Unstressed
Stressed Women's movements:
increasing political awareness and liberty of women Achieving things with potential, rather than what is being limited Sought to end child labor
Upsurged value in education for children Feminist roles in society escalated Aftermath of Hippies:
Love, Peace, and Happiness New social trends reflected - edgy & urban Beginning of a changed America in maturity and modernity
Children would still have to struggle to go along for the ride Children able to expand their boundaries - time for parents to let go Tom Wolfe (August 1976) labeled "Me decade" for the 1970s (poem written in October 1976) centered on self determination and individualism One must conquer obstacles independently to grow as an individual.
