Overview and Rationale My unit theme is child labor today and yesterday. This topic first interested me in elementary school when I learned about child labor in the United States during the Industrial Revolution. I remember finding it hard to believe that a nation as great as ours would place children in danger. I felt sad for the children that had to suffer, but I was also relieved that our government eventually created laws to protect children; however, I later learned that the United States cannot protect children through out the world and that child labor continues to be a global issue.

Jessica Tarahata Hagedorn had been in the United States for only three years after moving from the Philippines at age thirteen when her poems caught the attention of Kenneth Rexroth. Rexroth, a San Francisco-based artist, encouraged her to hone her writing and edited the book that first featured her poetry, Four Young Women Forged in the heat of the early s ethnic revival, her early forays into poetry, playwriting, and short fiction employed the psychedelic and rebellious idioms particular to that period.
While in San Francisco, Hagedorn took acting lessons and subsequently developed an interest in the performing arts that was to steer her into multimedia work. Her experience as a lyricist for a band configured her poetry as one of effect and rhythm, proving congenial to her interest in interpretive readings and theater, After Joseph Papp produced her collaboration with Thulani Davis and Ntozake Shange, Where the Mississippi Meets the Amazonshe moved to New York to work as a playwright and musician, involvements that stamped her poetry with distinctively performative strains.
Papp produced her first play, Mango Tango, in Pet Food and Tropical Apparitionsa novella that incorporates a surreal vignette and seven musical poems, distinguished her as an eclectic and highly experimental artist.
It won her the American Book Award for the same year and helped her secure Macdowell Colony Fellowships in and Another Macdowell fellowship in allowed her to complete work on Dogeaters Pet Food clearly contained the seeds for Dogeaters; this accomplished, hilarious, and hyperreal, novella is driven by two memorable cinematic moments.
A starlet recounts the sordid sequence of her newest skin flick in which a virtuoso pianist plays "A Moonlight Sonata" while she performs sex with an anteater and five West Indians on top of a grand piano.
George Sand, the youthful but hardbitten protagonist-poet, gives form to her morbid desire for patricide and suicide in cross-cut images of Filipino guerillas slaughtering her politically powerful father and her alter ego.
Character sketches for the top, middle, and bottom "dogs" that populate Philippine society in Dogeaters inhabit this novella's world of maladjusted migrant youths and social deviants. What one critic described as "the cinematext of a Third World scenario that might be the Philippines" in Dogeaters is first seen in this ensemble of deftly-spliced "rushes.

Oxford University Press, So again, for the recordlet it be said that merienda is a light, late-afternoon Filipino feast.
And there is perhaps no more fitting place for merienda with Ms. Hagedorn, a poet, performance artist, rock-and-roll band leader, novelist and Filipina diva, than Cendrillon.
It is a fashionable SoHo bistro, where traditional Filipino fare is masterfully tweaked; where, with a wink and a touch of culinary genius, the bibingka becomes a rich souffle of gouda and feta instead of the traditional water-buffalo cheese, and where the paella is a steaming cornucopia of shrimp, long beans and indigo-colored rice, instead of the standard long-grain white.
Hagedorn, 47, doesn't cook much. But like the brains behind Cendrillon, she too has cultivated the art of the melange, in life and in literature. Like the critically acclaimed "Dogeaters" Pantheon Books, and her numerous plays and poems, her second novel, "The Gangster of Love," published in August by Houghton Mifflin and scheduled for paperback release by Penguin next year, is a cornucopia of eccentric characters full of drama, bravado and sass.Dinosaurs Island in Clark, Pampanga.
