Author: Chutter, Jennifer Anne
“Will a house make it all okay?” is a personal reflection essay of how I construct a definition of home. Through sensory memories of home, I reconstruct my childhood definition of home and then look at how my childhood is reflected in my adult understanding of home. “The Power of Idealized Images” uses Margaret Atwood’s novel, Cat’s Eye to address the power that idealized images have in shaping our understanding of home. By tracing the protagonist’s, Elaine Risley, understanding of two distinctly different childhood home environments, I show her understanding of home is reflected in her artwork as an adult.
