Now that you have read both “Cat in The Rain” and “Hills Like White Elephants” you can start to draw parallels between the two. This week, you are going to pull specific quotations from each story to highlight similarities/differences.
Please pick 3 of the following 7 bullet points to prove, with a quotation from EACH work. That means you are creating a post with a total of 6 quotations (3 from “Cat in The Rain” and 3 from “Hills Like White Elephants”).
The stories share:
The symbolism of setting, and extraneous items (such as animals!)
The character dynamic: dominant/passive
issues in communication/tension of feelings
difference in desires
concept/notion of family life and/or marriage
freedom and independence vs codependency/entrapment
Be sure that you really scour the work in order to pick the best quotation to support your claim. Of course, write which numbered point you’re proving, then list the 2 quotations that best support it (1 from each work). And do this 3x.
This is an exercise in determining importance, establishing the fact, building your argument, and providing clarity.
5 points, due Saturday evening, 5/1.
