According to my friend,oconnor said:Ok my thoughts.
Section 1: Rothwell is a homo, I mean, what did he learn? Or gain for that matter, the only thing I could even think of was him picking up anecdotes wherever he travels. I didnt like text 2, who cares? Text 3 made no sense whatsoever. VERY hard IMO for the whole of section 1. I'm in the same boat as many, didnt leave enough time for the 5 marker.
I wrote that the attitude conveyed is one of travelling into the unknown and new discoveries on the course of the journey. Expecting the unexpected sort of thing. On Giant Shoulders anyone? lol I have no idea if its right though.nedcooper1 said:What did everyone identify as 'the attutude conveyed towards journeys in "the horizon seemed the most persuasive home"'? I can't remember mine clearly but I know I didn't write "that journeys never end" and Im feeling this was the right answer now. Thoughts?
i liked it. but then, maybe that's because i could make some semblance of sense from it all??careee said:man is there anyone out there that actually LIKED this section? like seriously, please come foward, coz i'd like to hear your thoughts.
text three was a little preface which described the author's changing view on how to approach Northern and Central Australia. basically, he was saying that the way of life and the land and animals all have a much different way of thinking/behaving/reacting and so when you try to encapsulate it in a sweeping statement, it doesn't work. the "non-linear" thing was him describing a way of thinking. he said that a linear way of thinking and a logical approach didn't work. he said it was better to be non-linear and to be more open-minded.Martyno1 said:WHAT THE FUCK WAS TEXT 3? I seriously think I got like <=10 for this section, it was the HARDEST section 1 I've ever seen!!
Again, I'll say WHAT THE HELL was text 3?!?!?!
Text three was the easiest i thought. it tells you that its about 'journeys and experiences in northern and central aust'Crizzy said:does anyone know what text3 was all about?!?
I think it was about how journeys can expand your horizons, and something about not appreciating the country until you have explored it completely and writing a book.Crizzy said:does anyone know what text3 was all about?!?
I think text two was about her imaginative journey to go and live in the same english town, and experience what it would be like to live in a town where the bubanoic plague had struck. There were a few techniquessiobhan07 said:Text three was the easiest i thought. it tells you that its about 'journeys and experiences in northern and central aust'
This text had the most techniques that i found,
Simile 'the deserts of the centre were like schoolrooms'
Metaphor 'a life path that is fragmented'
Personification 'the landscape...offering its redemptive silence'
You had to use the techniques to:
e) Explain what Rothwell comes to realise about his journey.:wave:
I found text 2 the hardest. hardley any techniques...only picked up vivid imagery in 'a small paddock rises gently to an apple orchard'
and what the hell does the question have to do with the journeys concept...c) Analyse the writers use of contrast in this feature article?
Section one from this apaer was the hardest and most technique barron i have ever come accross.
I highly doubt it.kloudsurfer said:Lets hope paper 2 is a bit less...crap
