1. Discuss the use of imagery in the novel. The character of the book Charlie, he speaks about his room like a “womb” it refers to Charlie’s childhood as being safe and comfortable is like a childhood world and when he leaves these different worlds he often talks about the “bubble” the bubble represent protection, his comfort zone and kind of represent that he doesn’t want to grow up he still want to be protected by someone late he talks about when the bubble bursts his like been exposed to the real world and his becoming mature and becoming a true adult. There are also times that he speaks about “there is a blizzard in my bubble” it is referring to the turmoil within his world, when he escape from the window in his room he speaks about “my exit from window, is like a foal being born” is a metaphor of been growing up into adult hood, also he has leave his protection from his parent and has leave his comfort zone. Anne Lu’s garden has a very similar meaning to Charlie “bubble”, her garden is like a place that she can escape from the real world to her own world that she created.

2. Discuss the theme of ‘growing up’ as it is developed in the novel? There are points in a person’s life when they must grow, drop their naïve illusions about the world and step into the shoes of an adult and accept the harsh reality of life. Jasper Jones is a ‘growing up ‘novel written by Craig Silvey set in a small town Corrogan. With the main theme being right of ‘growing up’. Charlie Bucktin is the perfect example of the theme ‘growing up’ in which he talks about the “bubble” when the bubble bursts it feels like he has creates a new and fearful awareness of the adult world and he’s being able to read his father books from his library it’s a very big impact from him because it tells that his father thinks that his becoming an true adult and has become more responsible. The word “growing up” is kind of a scary for Charlie because he learns that growing up is about knowing adult secrets and reality is full of horrible things as well as secret things, good things and ugly things. When Jasper Jones bring Charlie to the bush and he offer Charlie a smoked, he pretends that he has smoked before this is a stereotype of getting trust from Jasper Jones, but later he does take a smoke it indicated that he has grown up and know is very stressful to being an adult.

3. Having considered the representation of gender in other texts, discuss how gender is represented in Jasper Jones. Choose at least two characters to focus on in your discussion.

In the society sports represents a lot to men because playing sports is the social currency for being masculine. Charlie and Jasper they are two different kind of people because Jasper masculine and Charlie is not, jasper is confident, clever, brave and mature and in sports his is like a hero but Charlie is the opposite of jasper his not brave and feminine and his not good at playing sports but his more clever than jasper. Charlie also talks about “ my fear is itching me, a sickly buzz on my skin” is a metaphor for fear and “there are insects crawling on my shoulders” the references to insects coincide with the fears Charlie is having or experiencing , so whenever he is threatened he speaks of insects. Jasper doesn’t fear of insects “ he swats the air like he is trying to catch a passing insects” it shows that he does not have the same fear as Charlie, and it determine that his more mature then Charlie. But in the stories when Charlie spends the night with Eliza he discovers insect bites on his body in the morning, he doesn’t experience his fear any more it tells that he has grown up and has been more mature.

4. Discuss the notion of ‘the other’ as it relates to the novel, Jasper Jones? Consider specific characters in your answer. In the book Jasper Jones that a lot of racism people call it the “other”, and during 1960’s era there were a lot of racism issues in Australia. There was racism towards Aboriginal people and towards the Vietnamese people due to the Vietnam War. Jasper is actually a good person, He is confident, cleaver, brave and mature. But the town fails to see this because of the racism towards him, they blamed him for all the wrong doings in the town such as burning the post office which in fact he dint do and the town people things that “ his just an animal, with a human body”. Jeffery Lu, An Lu and his wife, are othered because of their Vietnamese background and stereotyped because of the war. Charlie is also the ‘other’ because of his academic ability and his lack of sporting prowess. In the small town Corrigan sports is a very big thing for men it represent masculinity and a true man, which sports can also ‘buys’ people’s attention and popularities. Mad Jack Lionel is seen as an ‘other’ because of his stereotyping from the town and a stereotyped as a villain, a murderer, a thief because of the exaggeration of the people of the town, even Jasper thinks of him when he found Laura dead.

5. Explain how the film, to kill a mockingbird and/ or Mississippi Burning, has contributed to your understanding of Jasper Jones. Prejudice refers to the judgements toward a person because of their race, social class and age. Two text, in which the theme is presented in an admirable way, are “To kill a mockingbird” by Harper Lee and “Jasper Jones” by Craig Silvey. Through the use of the protagonists the theme is presented in a way that allows the reader to realize the harsh reality of the subject matter, yet it is still demonstrated in an approachable and relatable way, further enhanced by the first person narration of the books. During 1930s America and 1960s Australia racial prejudice was at its highest point with African Americans and Aborigines as the theme “other” or “colour”. The small mindedness of the towns Corrigan, Maycomb and Jessup Country they are stuck in their ways, in beliefs and attitudes. The film “To kill a mockingbird” and the book “jasper jones” they two have the same fear, they are fear of outsiders because they doesn’t want change in their town and the character in both stories “Jasper Jones” and the “blacks or colour” they are the scape goat.
