Yep. That's how I saw itTriangulum said:Others saw it as her growing bored with her mundane existence, symbolised by the boring sheep.

admirable effort.wm_abusef said:Yep. That's how I saw it
The vibrance and vivd imagery and excitement created through the use of enjambent for example wasn't seen in the final stanza. The final stanza seemed as though the persona wanted to escape the monotonous and vapid life that she was living in order to experience those new things.
The landscape question was tough at first, but with some articulated BS and some thought afterwards I think I did pretty well in it.
Overall it was a fairly decent paper. Section One probably would have messed up a lot of people though. The photographer text (Text One) was ambiguous (in terms of the actual visual stimuli provided) yet I still used it for the final 5 marker- that and the poem.
But you can still say it emphasises the personal nature of a journey through the way the imagery and use of "She" and the pronoun "I" in the epigram at the start.The Logical One said:me being the retard I am didn't realise that WANDERLUST was written in 3RD PERSON untill it was too late to change which had the personal representation of Journey.
Well, it did look like a shoe next to that photographer in the last pic.....Nekromantix said:"photographers and nomads are alike because they both don't wear shoes"
~ i think that pretty much sums up the whole experience for me today, and now im not sure if even TAFE will take me lol... it was re-god-damn-diculous!!
you went into specific detail. i think that's good. you're going to do well. most people's will make very obvious and generalised comments.cooki said:Ok Question 1...this is a brief overview but the main ideas are still there...
.... and blah blah blah blah
I think i related poem two to the responder. I wrote that the landscape allows one to see the elements that are embodied in the journey, which consequently will inspire one's life. Example: to write etc.. Don't know if it's rightcooki said:Ok Question 1...this is a brief overview but the main ideas are still there...
for choosing one photograph i chose the great wall of china as alluding to exotic asian cultures and showing like wordly experience blah blah travelling to the corners and "Wandering the earth"
For text 2, significance of landscape was that it made the composer realise what made the cave at home, like the fusion of man-made and natural products in the surroudning landscape of the cave reinforced what kind of home it is, for the cave mimicked this style. so he had to override the mental obstacle of his initial perception, which is why the description of the landscapes were significant as they detailed this personal change in him (links to personal nature of journeys)
text 3 -> the last stanza was significant because it shows how the girls feels at home, shows that her desire of wanting to travel and dance to jazz music, yada yada yada, for example her senses are not being enacted on as strongly in the last stanza and also the simile "remote and alien cold as snow leopards" which works on two levels, the first being that the ewes in her "home paddock" were alien to her showing that she feels unfaimilar in her own home but at the same time, the "snow leopards" are also unfamiliar to her because she wants to travel but is instead sitting at home, reading the travel stories of richard halliburton.
(F) the last question was just analysis and was therefore easy, thank god they didnt ask for evaluation. i just crapped on about the contrasting images in text three, with the bringing together of binary opposites such as the images of sand (pharaohs..gold dust) instantly contrasted agains the snow, symbolise the bringing together of the extremes of human existence showing her lack of contentment at this point of the journey, coz you cant exactly have both at once...and also the allusions to ancient egyptian culture "pharaohs bones" symbolic of the unknown, neways as you can see they all make up aspects of the journey
so i think i went fine...
creative task though hmm...
i did my imaginary journeys essay about speculation in the first place, which i memorised so yay...
i hope i do ok
