Transcript of Journeys

Setting Concept of Journey's Journeys Journey's; they are adventures, whether it's fantasy, emotional, physical or your imagination. A personal experience, a hike in the wood’s, migrating to a different country, traveling on a boat & many more of this sort. Journeys are seen as a transition, moving from one place to another.

As one of many journey's end obviously in class we have learnt that another begins. As one door closes another opens. Skryznecki's Poem's "Crossing the Red Sea" , "Leaving Home" & Finding Nemo written and directed by Andrew Stanton all shows the same message about journey's, the character's in all three of the texts each have to embark on a physical and emotional journey.

Learning about journeys, a journey can be included in a song , a book or poem , fairy tales , a dream , a nightmare and many more similar to these examples. Journeys include different scenarios based on what category of journey it actually is.

Physical Journeys can be a trek up a mountain, to a trip through a national park. Emotional Journey's include situations that affect your emotional state of mind. Ranging from personal problems that impact your mood. Imagination/Fantasy; using your mind and images to create an inner or personal experience you want to do, a picture or story as a journey you want to take up. Concept Map A Journeys Path Techniques Leaving Home •Skrzynecki has used techniques in relation to his journey in this poem "Leaving home". Peter has written about his journey to Australia and having to go on a job interview and wanting to accomplish this without going through the process. Skrzynecki just wants the outcome and he expresses his "forced" journey using multiple language techniques in the text.

•Using language to incorporate these ideas , the composer has used Allusion (An individual being made to do something they cant control. This is refering to the stanza that includes the quote "Unless i became my own Scipio Africanus" This defines a person who defeated the large Hannibal of Carthage.

•Hyperbole, a figure of speech involving over the top exaggeration .
This has been shown in the third stanza "He was the millionth person that couldn't pronounce my name. No more no less" this shows how annoyed the teacher feels at having always to deal with people who can't pronounce his name correctly. He shows this as a sign of disrespect for him as an individual.

•Surrealism, in Skryznecki’s text, the teacher has incorporated not a language technique but an expression. Surrealism meaning over the top, out of this world, crazy and unexpected. "Leaving home" being about Peter's journey and taking up a forced interview and using surrealism being arrogant and suggesting he is carrying his "Severed head under one arm" Showing that he does not want to be there in the first place & he would much rather just have the outcome and go through the journey. Composer Peter Skryznecki’s has written both of the two set texts studied in class. "Crossing the red sea" & “Leaving Home", Skryznecki’s has used multiple techniques in both poems to convey ideas about Journeys. This author incorporates these quotes into the text to show their meaning and relation to journey's and his personal journeys as well. Both texts have a wide range of expression and techniques. This shows in "Crossing the Red Sea" that journeys can end on a positive note even if the journey is forced like in "Leaving home". Finding Nemo To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping. Starting off the journey

Beginning or creating
your journey to be able to
make it occur. Obstacles

Coming across obstacles in your journey and figuring it out, finding a way to... Overcome

Finding a way to overcome the obstacles facing the hardship of it and woking through it to reach where you want go, you might face many obstacles, but you have to overcome them to.. Reaching your destination

After starting your journey, Facing different scenario's & amounts of obstacles, aswell as overcoming them. After all of this , your journey can finally reach its end and you reach your destination. But remember as one ends another one always begins. Crossing the Red Sea
• Allegory in "Crossing the Red Sea” symbolic narrative in which the surface details imply a secondary meaning. It is shown in the title representing the story in the bible “Crossing the Rea Sea”. This shows how the text is related to Journeys and is a journey in itself. Allegory is also used in the text with another example "Northern Wars", which represents World War II.

•Another technique, Personification. "Silence fell from its shackles" this represents the dark and depressing part of the journey in this poem creating an image of grief and loss. Personification means the endowment of inanimate objects or abstract concepts with living or animate objects or qualities this is shown in "Pine trees whispering" & "The seas breath" this represents a biblical reference.

•Metaphoric language techniques comparing between essentially unlike things without a comparative word as like or as.
Showing this technique in "Memories strayed from behind sunken eyes”. This showing the dark times of the journey, how memories from their home and their old country were lost, it suggests the past sufferings, and misery that the migrants have gone during war.

•Showing this technique in "Memories strayed from behind sunken eyes”. This is showing the dark times of the journey, how memories from their home and their old country were lost, it suggests the past sufferings, and misery that the migrants have gone during war.

•Alliteration is also used in Skryznecki’s poem as a repetition of consonant sounds, especially at the beginning of words. Alliteration was included in "Stretched out on blankets and pillows, against cabins and rails: Shirtless, in shorts, barefooted, themselves a landscape, of milk-white flesh, On a scoured and polished deck. This emphasises movement and calmness.

•Imagery, Skryznecki’s has cohered this into the selected text being the pattern of related comparative aspects of language, particularly of images, in a literary work. He has incorporated this technique by quoting again "Silence fell from its shackles” As well as personification this also can create an image of grief and dark sad times Putting the image in your head that this is a rather depressing time for the migrants coming to Australia. Enjoy the journey, Appreciate the arrival Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it. Everyday is a journey •Finding nemo , is about a journey and other journey's taken within it. A journey for a father to swim across the entire ocean to find his son that was taken away frrom him on a school field trip, by a diver and gets taken back to a sydney dentist office.

•Finding nemo relates to composer Peter Skryznecki's text Crossing the Red Sea as it shows the journey in the techniques used and the quotes that are used. Both texts are faced with hardships where the migrants have to stray away from their home country and travel to Australia, "Memories strayed" , "To watch a sunset they would never see again" In finding nemo Marlin is faced with the hardship of losing his wife and babies and then losing his son to a bunch of divers in the Pacific Ocean. "I have to find my son"

•Finding nemo relates to the text Leaving home by using techniques and quotes. Leaving home shows the composer not wanting to take the journey and only wanting the outcome, Having his parents there for moral support to encourage him to take the journey. This has a strong relationship to Finding nemo as Marlin is unsure and mostly afraid to take the journey . Pacific Ocean Great Barrier Reef showing where
the journey was taken. Sydney , Australia. Characters Nemo the Clownfish, with the "lucky fin"
taken by divers, goes on a forced emotional journey,

speaking and what is occuring. Capturing moments ,hardships ,obstacles & outcomes. Music Selecting different music to match the mood, emotion in the scene, representing the feeling and experience before, during & after the journey.

Knowing the different techniques in texts that show relation to journey's and the concept of journey's and how they work, what happens along the way & how to express the message with expressions and quotes.
