Write a letter to Patrick White telling him what you think of any one of the texts you have read this week.


Mr Patrick White,

Having read your work “Down at the Dump” firstly I would like to state that I am most impressed with your depiction of strength and independence shown through a female character in your work reflected upon by her chopping the wood, which typically is a chore depicted to be done by males. Moreover your uncommon depiction of the more grotesque features of people in Australian society is truly one which is unique and makes for an interesting read. When reading upon the people and society in Australia, most authors tend to miss out the more disenfranchised Australians as well as the more disconnected and rural which you vividly display and as such should be commended.

I would personally like to thank you for your insight into these ideas through your composition
