Analyse how the lack of a clear outcome in at least TWO short stories you have studied makes the stories successful for you: Journey by Patricia Grace and The People Before by Maurice Shadbolt both look at land confiscation and compensation cases that occurred during the early colonization of New Zealand and their modern relevance today. Although both these authors approach this similar topic differently, both stories lack a clear outcome. This is particularly effective for us as readers because
When Mercury delivers a message to Aeneas, he does not simply arrive, as Homer would have written it. He jumps and flies and soars over many important places, with great and interesting detail of his every twist and turn on his journey (Aen. 4.310-337). This illustrates not only the further development of writing over Homer, but also possibly the Roman audience’s lesser belief in such gods, as they can’t simply be to be believable.

They are often seen arm-in-arm, enjoying nature or exploring the grounds at Kellynch Hall. Perhaps a somewhat unconventional couple, Admiral Croft allows his wife to take the reins in a carriage (Austen 62) and go with him on his naval journeys. When they visit Bath, they have no shortage of acquaintances who are delighted to see them (Austen 111).
