'It is only when we are fearless that we begin to create.’
Does this statement hold true in the case of the poem, Aunt Jennifer’s Tigers? Support your stance with evidence from the text.
- no, this statement does not hold true with respect to the poem
- even though Aunt Jennifer was fearful of her husband, which is indicated by her 'fluttering hands' / was burdened by her marriage to him, which is indicated by the weight of her wedding band, she channelled that fear/burden into creating her art.
Her fear did not stop her from creating her art.
