Question description


  1. Consider the following quotes from the The Motorcycle Diaries book and film. They deal with the topic of journeys, adventure and travel, significant topics in this story. Think about the lessons or observations of human experience arise.
    • I now know, by an almost fatalistic conformity with the facts, that my destiny is to travel, or perhaps it’s better to say that traveling is our destiny, because Alberto feels the same.

  2. Consider the following questions:
    • How do these quotes help you understand the message or theme of this memoir?
    • What observations does the memoir make about human nature?

    • Find quotes from the book excerpts as evidence to support your thesis statement, including setting, language, point of view, and metaphor.
    • Find scenes and specific cinematic elements from the film to support your statement.
  4. Post your three paragraphs.
