Hi, I really need related texts for powerplay i was thinking about doing
A few good men (film) and am looking for a poem or even a cartoon. It would be great if someone could give me a few suggestions.

Thank you

i got no fu***** clue about related texts - so ive sorta just given up.

antony is an idiott
cleopatra is a open-legged whore
ceasar is gay
enobarbas is a pedofile,

im very happy that shakespeare is dead, coz he ruined our world with his hopeless plays.

i'l probably fail my HSC, then become a REAL bogan.
FTW BOGANS FOR LIFE!

I noticed there are a few people considering V for Vendetta... I did that for my first assessment task of Year 12 but I'm ditching it now because I didn't have enough to talk about. Make sure you don't retell it! Because I did and I got marked down... I think it's alright but you have to have a lot on it. I chose it because it's my favourite movie. :p

My prescribed text is After Mabo, which is a barrel of fun. :burn: My additional texts are I Have A Dream, A Clockwork Orange (the book) and Othello. For anyone who's looking for info on ACO, the site sparknotes has quite a lot. You'll have to sift through a bit to find stuff relating to powerplay, but I've found it quite useful. They also have notes on a lot of other texts.

Is it appropriate to use a painting or picture by random people on sites such as deviant art as a supplementary text?

Who's done that b4? and how would you reference it?

I'm going to use an episode of Gossip Girl, showing that power play is not just restricted to politics and religion but occurs also on a more superficial level

Hey I was thinking of maybe doing a WW2 poster or something calling for people to support their country and enlist. Would that be considered a good related text? I'm thinking of using it to showI guess political power/manipulation of public and question extent to which general people hold power (from syllabus). Is it a good choice?
