Prac Essay For Area Of Study Physical Journey "The Journey Not The Arrival Matters"

1167 words - 5 pages

The statement suggesting that "the journey not the arrival matters" can be discussed either way. In the case of Lionheart, the recount of Jesse Martin's solo trip around the world, can prove this statement true as the book is written about the journey itself and the importance of the process in order to finish it. Another source, which proves the statement true, is text 2 from the stimulus booklet The Ivory Trail--an advertisement or book cover depicting an image of a story written by the author Victor Kelleher. On the other hand The Road Not Taken (by Robert Frost, text 1) puts forward the case that the arrival does have more significance than the journey itself.The theme of Lionheart, ...view middle of the document...

The Road Not Taken proposes a different view. In this text the story of the journey is being told and reflected on by the author. He recounts being stumped upon a choice of roads and the final route he decided on trekking. The last stanza "I shall be telling this with a sigh...I took the one less travelled by, and that had made all the difference" displays the importance of the arrival of the journey as it had consequences that made the author reflect and think about his journey and the other choice. If the author had not completed his journey to the end of the chosen path, he would have not been able to make a recount and personal rumination of the event. The arrival holds a more significant role in this particular text.The main theme held in Frost's poem The Road Not Taken is that although the journey needed to happen (in order for an arrival to exist), the arrival of the journey was needed in order for the author to create the text. As well, the author was able to reflect a conclusive judgement of his journey. This is not just saying that all journeys require an arrival in order for it to be recounted and turned into a text, rather, this particular journey was 'taken' to find what the consequences of the arrival would be. The arrival (or the outcome of the arrival) in this case--was the spur for the journey.Contrasting with Lionheart, The Road Not Taken was a journey made purposely for the outcome of the arrival. Jesse Martin describes his desire to sail around the world was to experience the trip itself. He does make reference to the arrival, as he also feels incitement from the future prospect of the ending and achieving a goal (setting a world record). This must be considered, however, that Jesse's initial motivation and key theme was to just simply sail. Therefore, a journey may be done with no prospect of an arrival or ending.The saying goes that when someone goes on a journey they "go from A to B." The fact that Jesse Martin's journey was a circumnavigation proves that Jesse was not interested in voyaging from one place...
