Hi Serena,

I like your balance of personal expression and critical analysis of the texts we studied and your description of what you’ve learnt from these texts throughout your entry. In particular, your ideas about the appreciation of nature explored in the extract from Thomas L. Mitchell is very well written, as you discuss both contrasting views towards Aboriginal culture and their heritage in detail. You’ve also stated your own interest as a student in finding more literary works that highlight the utilitarians approach to the land and indigenous culture, which is also good. Overall, great first entry on the study of Australian literature!
