    Any good Australian poems about immigrants/by immigrants?

    Definately Peter SKRZYNECKI, although I believe Shan TAN's picture books on the immigrant experience would be wonderful as well.

    Some good justice related texts?

    The Oresteia, particularly The Eumenides. I also think you should check out books from the crime fiction genre which always inevitably encounters issues of justice/injustice.

    Help with Plath-After the Bomb essay

    Paradigms is an important term to know/learn as it essentially means "ways of thinking". When you are talking about different paradigms of a text you are talking about different ways of reading a text eg. social, religious, philosophical, psychological.

    Related Text question.

    I think songs should be fine as long as it has some depth to it AND that you can extract a lot of meaning/links to belonging from it. I've seen it done with Creep by Radiohead.

    Is Society and Culture an interesting subject?

    Yes I agree with jnney. You won't know if it's for you until you try it out in year 11.
