Maclagan (1996) argues that before and after the advent of psychoanalysis, the art world has sent communications and expressions into the world providing a deep metaphoric and symbolic fabric to emerge, which allows for shaping the incoherent and hinting at what is beyond words (p. 92). This hinting at what is beyond words places images on the level of instincts, according to Hillman (1979), allowing them to come from the place of our inherent animal nature as they visit us in subtle ways (p.142).

Critical debates about the value of popular culture often raise the spectres of Americanisation and cultural imperialism, particular issues for a 'provincial' culture. However, as Bell and Bell (1993) point out in their study of Australian-American cultural relations: "culture is never simply imposed 'from above' but is negotiated through existing patterns and traditions" ( p. 9).

The inequity in the distribution of wealth in Australia is yet another indicator of Australia’s lack of egalitarianism.
This is the topic sentence: a statement of the writer’s intended argument
‘In 1995, 20% of the Australian population owned 72.2% of Australia’s wealth with the top 50% owning 92.1%’ (Raskall 1998 p.287).
Supporting evidence is provided to support the student’s claim.

The writer comments on the evidence given above.
McGregor (1988) argues that Australian society can be categorised into three levels: the Upper, Middle and Working classes. In addition, it has been shown that most Australians continue to remain in the class into which they were born (McGregor 1988)
McGregor’s evidence is used to support and elaborate on the previous claim.
