The Journey An area of study - TEACHER RESOURCE

Text 3: The wind in the willows by Kenneth Grahame

OVERVIEW

- Well known childrens classic
- Associated with Area of study: The journey
- Animal figures represent human traits
- parable approach allows author to satarise flaws, foibles (weakness in/of character), and idiosyncrasies with humour
- able to read on number of different levels
- issues relevent to adults
- positive connotations of travel
- evident in Toad's character
- Rat is juxtaposed to Toad's character
- unwilling to explore unknown
- Toad is adamant about virtues of travel
- Rat is adamant that staying at home has greater advantages
- Toad encourages idea of exploration
- idea made more attractive by 'gypsy wagon'
- Toad epitomises all positive attributes of travel
- Explore the antithetical pressures of staying and going and the virtues of what is new against what is familiar

JOURNEY MOTIF

- Journey that Toad proposes is full of promise
- Enthuses it will allow them to experience 'real life'
- Gypsy cart becomes the vehical for world of adventure:
"Travel, change, interest, excitement!"
- Toad seems jaded with remaining the same
- assumes that others will share his enthusiasm

- Ratty likes comfort of familiar-has no inclination for heading off with Toad
-In this sense they represent negative/positive of changing one enviroment for another
- Kenneth Grahame uses: "I'm going to make an animal of you my boy!"
- Ratty remains adamant about not going

DETAILED ANALYSIS - CHARACTERS

TOAD
- Forceful character
- Exuberant & assertive
- Conceited & full of own self importance
- blames the cart for the trip..."the very finest cart...ever built".
- Proud
- Bossy nature

RATTY
- Conservative individual
- Unimpressed & uninspired by Toad
- Antithetical opposite of Toad
- Appears dull, boring and tiresome
- Rational
- Obdurate
-Stubborn

MOLE
- Immediately responds to Toad's enthusiasm
- Fence-sitter: caught inbetween two adamant individuals

CONTEXT

- Early 20th Century Britain; story about animals a humourous reflection on human life and attitudes

PROSE FEATURES

- Visual & aural imagery used to make scene vivid and amusing
- Juxtaposition
- Direct speech
- Register is formal, but literary (allegorical characters, symbol, dialogue)
OMG THIS REALI HELP ME THXXXXXXXXX

Haha. Your writing is awesome.. The only reason I can't read it is because of the colouring of the page!

This is not valid for 2008 right?

Our faggot fatass cunt teacher made us do it and thinks its coming for the HSC, so we were made to get familiar with one of these.

So, for 2008 we cannot absolutely use any of these right?

these were just last-minute notes i wrote out the night before the hsc, i scanned them a while ago for a 2005-er chick on my livejournal friends list and figured they might be some kind of help. they're kind of rushed and lame and my writing's pretty scribblish due to cramming, but *shrug*

hey is ur name katie??

coz i looked those quotes on the internet that were written by a girl name sara posted on the bored of studies website. not accusing you lol!! just wondering, coz these notes were already typed up on this website somewhere...thanx]
