Texts in the City: Maestro
In the very first of our Texts in the City series based around the VCE English list, Stephanie Trigg and Tony Wilson discuss Peter Goldsworthy’s classic novel Maestro.
Tackling themes of talent and genius, failure and appeasement, Trigg and Wilson consider the relationships between Paul, Keller, Rosie and Paul’s parents from a breadth of perspectives aimed at enriching your appreciation of the story’s subtle themes.
