  9. 9. student response 2009 The character of Thornhill from the point of view of the reader is confusing and ultimately tragic. He is desperate underdog that we empathise strongly with as we follow him through his harsh upbringing. When he begins to establish a new life for himself and his family off the land surrounding the Hawkesbury river we are desperate to see him succeed and prosper, but as his relationship with Sal beings to strain, his actions impose upon the natives, and he is cruel to Dan we begin to realise that something is wrong. It becomes clear to us that Thornhill is a flawed man, we find ourselves seeing Thornhill become the same figure that oppresses him as a child and empathise instead with Dan, the natives, and the other Thornhills.
