Term 6 Unit 6 Discussion
Unit 6 DB: The symbols of your life (ENG130 Literature & Composition)
Initial response: Henry and Walker provide stories that include symbols that are life-changing for the protagonist(s). In two or more well-developed paragraphs, answer the following prompts:
- Choose a symbol from either “The Gift of the Magi” or “Everyday Use” and discuss what significance this symbol had to you as the reader (an example of this would be the combs Jim gave to Della and a discussion about a precious gift that you received or gave). Use text examples in this section.
- If someone were to write your life story, what symbol would be present and why? How does this symbol represent you? You can attach a picture of your symbol (an example of this might be a baby blanket from your childhood, or a baseball from your first game).
