Emmigrants Woman’s Lit March 2 nd 2010 By Charlotte Turner Smith Main audience is middle class. EMO? A sense that things aren’t right in this poem - Finance: Poverty was a big thing here, and she was broke, so sad - Married young, so sad - French revolution was during this time , so she was sad. o Jackolins vs the French transformed the revolution into the Terror, king and aristocrats are being murdered, and all around dire times. But some thought that the revolution of France was a good thing the hope was to go to England. But fear that France is waging war against England. Plot- Since she is English and this poem is to warn the English that France could oppress us and we must act because we could be immigrants. - This is universal- for the her, the French, and her people Prospect Poem - - Smith also wrote Beaches Head- essentially gives a lot of footnote detailing her knowledge about the landscape o Trying to establish that knowledge base o In both poems she is getting at a very different view of conflict o In accords of a Prospect poem- she is seeing a larger political landscape… in this case it irritates her. “The center cannot hole”- what the French held for fear upon England.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
