Looking at Picasso's Reclining Nude with a Necklace
Nude Woman with Necklace
Topic 3: Feminism/Sexual Imagery
Stanza 1:
How enchanting/ to come across you/
reclining nude
/ dark-eyed/ dark-haired/ solemnly returning my gaze/
body reinvented into surprises -
/
a sprung rhythm against a red couch

Stanza 2:
And your necklace/ perhaps handed down?/ A talisman/
to protect you
/
from the magic
/
of this painter's brush -
/
your blooming body parts
still less/ than the summery total of all you are.
Themes
1. The female body is not to be claimed, for it is her own to express.

2. The culture identified with is more beautiful and powerful than the one that is stereotyped.

3.Objectification is conceived through ignorance and lack of appreciation.
Topic 1: Scanning
How enchanting
to come across you
reclining nude
dark-eyed
dark-haired
solemnly returning my gaze
body reinvented into surprises -
a sprung rhythm against a red couch

And your necklace
perhaps handed down?
A talisman
to protect you
from the magic
of this painter's brush -
your blooming body parts still less
than the summery total of all you are.
Topic 2: Sibilance
Pablo Picasso - 1968
How enchanting
to come across you
reclining nude
dark-eyed
dark-haired
solemnly returning my gaze
body reinvented into surprises -
a sprung rhythm against a red couch

And your necklace
perhaps handed down?
A talisman
to protect you
from the magic
of this painter's brush -
your blooming body parts still less
than the summery total of all you are.

It is great
to see you
laying naked,
with your dark eyes
and dark hair
returning my gaze
your body full of surprises
against that red couch

And your necklace
Maybe it was passed down to you?
A necklace
to protect you
from the work
of this painter -
who depicts your body as much less
than all that you really are.
