We looked upon chapter 8 and did a summary on it. We also looked at what type of narration is used in the chapter and the effect us readers get form the narration.
In chapter 8 its reaveld that Joe is the narrative voice in the chapter. In the chapter what happens is that Joe dismisses Jed because he thinks hes crazy, insane and calls the police. Joe sees himself as a scientist however Jed is bothering him, aggrovating him. It made him realise that hes not such a big scientist. Joe is a paracite of others people work.
We also had to do a review on chapter 9 we had to think of the following:
- What is interesting about the narrative perspective here?
- Why do you think that McEwam writes the section this way?
- What does it contribute?
- the readers response to Joe
- the readers to Clarissa
- key ideas of storytelling and interpretation
What is intersting about the narrative is that the perspective is from third person/ominscent, but were not sure why joe is the main narrator. Joe interprets Clarissas point of view as he thinks in third person.
We think that McEwan writes in this way becasue it makes us raeders question what Joe thinks of Clarissas mind set, trying to precieve as Joe being the main character . Its trying to show off Joes intelligensts.We think that Joe is quite mad and rude. We think that McEwan is letting us add our own interpretation and perspective.
Chapter 11 review
We had to answer the following:
- What was intersting about the narrative voice?
- Why dose Mcewan do this?
- What do we learn about Jeds background?
The intersts of this narrative in this chapter is that its told as a letter. McEwan wabts to make us feel usure , to show that hes carzy and really obessive. What we learn about his background is that.
- Hes out on his own
- Hes realy close to God
- Hes got no family
- He enhirted is aunties money
- He use to be poor
- He exludes people
- He has a special relationship with God
- Wants Joe to Be closer to God

- Structure:lot more broken down, compared to chapter 8 he was arguing with himself.
- `Jeds letter written for Joe
- Joe is the focaliser
