McLeans Audio Narrative Analysis (Trevor Coville) 1.

McLean would alter his voice to show that another speaker was talking, which helped the reader follow the story. Also McLean raised and lowered the pitch of his voice to show his mood and often highlight his exasperation. 2. The narratives argument is that the things that are worth achieving are not easy to achieve. This argument is illustrated in two separate events in the narrative. The first is the journey to manhood that the author follows despite not originally wanting to hike, and later being physically exhausted. The second is also tied to the authors hatred of hiking, but focuses on his desire not to hike up the mesa to see the sun rise. In both cases the author perseveres against his desire to give up and is reworded.
