Dialogue and Themes

Let’s look at the  various characters attitudes to the indigenous population by completing the following table:

Character Attitude to Indigenous People In their own words…
Thornhill
Sal
Blackwood
Saggity
Smasher
Dick

Draw a line which represents a moral continuum between good and evil.  Place these characters on the spectrum according to their views, values and actions.

GOOD                                                                                                                            EVIL

 

Examine the novel’s end and the way the stories of each of these characters come to a close.  Make a note about each and what Grenville’s novel might suggest about these different views and values..
