Discovery related text suggestions?

Hi! Does anyone have any suggestions on related texts for discovery? My prescribed text is The Tempest, so it would be great to have a related text that is similar/can be compared to the Tempest. Thanks!

Hey f_tan! I didn't study Discovery, but the big one that our resident expert recommends is Distant Lands by Tim Winton. It's extremely conceptually rich and I think it works quite well with the Tempest :)

If you like, check out our essay marking thread to see what some other people have used!  I know there are a few Tempest essays in there; they might give you some ideas you can explore! :)

I did the Tempest! I posted my notes on the related texts The Perks of Being a Wallflower and An Idiot Abroad in the 'Choosing the Right ORT' thread.

Some other related texts that worked well for some of my friends include;
- Juno
- One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
- The Road Not Taken (poem by Robert Frost)
- Invictus (poem by W.E Henley)

Hope this helps! Good luck with your HSC :)

This x10!!! Highly recommend this.
In case you are after picture books though The Rabbits, Shaun Tan and John Marsden is also quite good. Just bear in mind I did Coast Road poems for my AoS.

This text is also good if you are in a pickle for Mod C People and Landscapes. I won't lie that this saved my HSC when my Mod C ORT didn't fit.
