Hi Brittany! I first would like to commend you on your blog post, it is vibrant and extremely factual. I really enjoyed the fact that you explored two of Patrick White’s writings instead of just sticking with one. In the first paragraph where you spoke of ‘The Prodigal Son’ and how White demonstrates “subverting the status quo and materialism” and bases his novel on the interior life rather than exterior. The second paragraph where you spoke about the “Down in the Dumps” extract that we read in class. Your interpretation of the relationship between Mrs Hogben, Megan and Daise enlightened my own views on the story.
One piece of advice: In the second paragraph you forgot to name the text you were speaking about – “Down in the Dumps”.
Keep up the Great Work!!
