The personal, cultural, historical and social contexts and values of both Kate Chopin (author) and Edna Potellier (protagonist) affect the reception and ramifications of Edna's discoveries. Our society treats Edna's discoveries in a very different way.
There are ramifications for Edna (ultimately her suicide) and the people around her (loss of control, loss of mother)
HSC Syllabus Definitions:
HSC Syllabus Definitions:
After we have picked out these aspects of "Discovery", we need to talk about HOW Kate Chopin represents them! We need to talk about language techniques!
Omniscient Third Person Narration
Motifs (eg the Ocean)
Themes (Discovery of course! But also oppression & independence)
Symbols (eg Birds)
But what about my supplementary text??
Let's try an example!
(example supplementary text)
Emotional, creative, intellectual, physical & spiritual
Discovering or rediscovering
Sudden & unexpected
Deliberately and carefully planned
Intensely meaningful
Confronting & provocative
Allow speculation about the future
New understandings of ourselves & others
Vary due to personal, cultural, historical and social contexts & values
Have ramifications for individuals & their worlds

Intellectual, emotional & physical discoveries of adulthood, literature, sexuality & agency
Discoveries are deliberate and planned to catch the wolf's attention in order to enter (& exit) his world
Her discoveries are confronting & provocative due to the nature of the relationship
Cultural, historical & cultural differences between The Awakening (1899) & "Little Red Cap" (1999) makes ramifications and reader reception of the discoveries very different!
Remember - techniques, techniques, techniques!
Violent & sexual imagery
Intertextuality (Grimm Bros' Little Red Riding Hood)
Extended metaphor (wolf = predatory man who can/should be "killed")
Humor (rhyme, cliches)
Double meanings (through enjambment)
Page 9!
Your HSC Syllabus describes many aspects of "discovery"
Use these different aspects to help define the types of discoveries found in your Prescribed and Supplementary Texts (eg. Physical discoveries? Emotional discoveries? Ramification for individuals or their worlds? Historical context?)
Then we analyse the techniques used to represent these different types of discoveries!
Good luck!
