From the Paper:

"Marge Piercy's poem "A Work of Artifice" shows how the artifice of men is used to dwarf and shape objects into designs that they find pleasing and controllable, but that tricks the objects out of their natural growth and destiny, and denies them their individuality. For example, the author uses the bonsai tree as a symbol to show how men control and prune a thing into a small, delicate work of art, but the bonsai has been artfully deceived out of its potential to grow eight feet tall.
