I have chosen to read the book “That Eye, The Sky” by Tim Winton
That Eye, the Sky (1994) - IMDb
Choosing to feature Australian films in this year's Worldfest-Charleston is proving a distinct coup, as the full-length cinematic offerings from Down Under provide fresh perspectives, exploring uncommon themes with new eyes. That Eye, The Sky defies characterization on at least three levels: it is thematically a mixed bag somewhere between mystery, magic, science fiction and religion; it stars a child but is not for children; and it poses far more philosophical questions than it answers.

The pressure to write is determined by the relationship between you as writer and the audience you're trying to reach and affect. Let's examine two essay beginnings with an eye toward determining the writer's purpose and how that sense of purpose establishes tone and word choice. Let's say that for a course in Art Appreciation we (there's a bit of pressure right there!) a brief analysis of a famous painting by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, (c. 1558; Oil on canvas, mounted on wood, 73.5 x 112 cm; Musees royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, Brussels). [Clicking on the image below will call up a larger version of the same painting 179 kb, not recommended with slow connections.] As you read the beginnings, think about the relationship between writer and audience and how this might have influenced how the writer wrote as he or she did.
