Introduction

Kaeli Thornton Professor Bayer ENGL 1201 DJ 16 November 2011 Essay Analyzing a Virtual Text The image that I chose was the one about the mother and child holding each other. The title of the artwork is To Love Would Be So Sweet by Georges Rouault. The abstract concept that I chose to write about is love. I chose love because of the way the mother and child are positioned and how they are looking at eachother. I chose this abstract concept because love is very important to me, and it is the obvious concept of this artwork. Love is a very important concept in my life and in most people's lives. Love is the most wonderful feeling in the world, but it also can be described as a very relative notion. This is because people's feelings change.

Middle

between sisters, between brothers and sisters, between parents and children, between husband and wife, between neighbors, between nations, between all relations, and love also exists between humans and other living beings such as animals. Therefore, nobody can deny the existence of love in this world. Love comes in so many different levels, that it does not appear to be the same emotion at all, but it is. There is so much to love all around us. It can tear people apart and make us do irrational things or bring together entire nations. Love can bring tears to our eyes when something happens to our family members, friends, and pets. When we feel love ripped from us, as in death of a loved one, we do things we would not normally do, such as go on violent rampages, or mourn to the extent that our surviving loved ones have to watch us constantly to make sure we do not try anything like suicide.

Conclusion

It is a bond that should not be taken for granted, and it is a relationship built on trust and love. Even before birth, a mother and child share a special bond. This bond is like no other, for it is a miracle to have a baby growing inside one's body. The feeling that emerges with this miracle are too strong for words. After birth, the bond develops into a greater emotional and physical bond. The child will spend much of her time learning in the first years of life with the mother, who is usually the primary caregiver. Much of what the children learn from their mother will affect their whole life. Through the processes of social learning and modeling, the child will learn his or her values, social roles, social identity and gender identity from his or her mother. Gender identity development is related to the emotional relationships that develop between children and their mothers.
