Hi Visitor!

I’m Sarah. I’m a junior Political Science and English major at Davidson College hailing from Falls Church, VA.

a-meI have always been an avid doodler. I figure, hey! If I make sense of the world through art, why not use art to make sense of poetry too?

Here at Davidson I have the opportunity to explore all of my varying interests, from studio art and creative writing to public policy. I am particularly involved in campus life as the president of the College Libertarians and a member of the cheerleading team. In short, I am a liberal arts student through and through.

As a libertarian, I think a lot about ownership of the body and property, advocating for justice reform and privacy. My political views definitely informed how I analyzed Auden’s “In Memory of W.B. Yeats” and “September 1, 1939.” I focused on images of imprisonment, freedom, and peace, pulling out the political meanings of the poems and evoking them through drawings of the human body, tormented by an oppressive society.

I hope you enjoy clicking through this project! I had a lot of fun putting it together. I drew every picture on the site, and maintain the rights to them. Please do not reproduce anything without permission.
