The Merry-Go-Round Motif

Satisfactory Essays
The text we studied this week was The Merry-Go-Round in the Sea, by Randolph Stow in relation to the topic of narration. This evocative novel is set in wartime Australia and its aftermath, seen through the childhood eyes of 6-year-old Rob Coram. During his maturation, Rob becomes aware of some of the basic conditions of life. One, symbolized by the recurrent merry-go-round motif, is the relentless, irredeemable course of time.
