Respond to one of the following
1 Choose a story with a first person narrator. How does the narrator’s bias, personality, and reliability affect the story? Are readers given false or biased impressions of other characters? How does this impact the meaning of the overall story?
2 Write an essay examining how a story of your choosing makes a statement about a social issue (class, race, gender, ageism, cultural identity). What claim does the story seem to be making? How does it use literary devices to illustrate its point? What characters seem to be speaking on behalf of the theme?
3 Explore the relationships between setting and symbol in a story of your choosing. How does the author establish a sense of place and why is this setting significant? Use examples and explain how symbols enhance the setting and relate to the theme.
