Week 05 Discussion - A White Heron

Price: $5 USD

Question description

In her story, "A White Heron," Sarah Orne Jewett  includes the following description:

"The woods were already filled with shadows one June evening, just before eight o'clock, though a bright sunset still glimmered faintly among the trunks of trees. A little girl was driving home her cow. ... They were going away from whatever light there was, and striking deep into the woods, but their feet were familiar with the path, and it was no matter whether their eyes could see it or not."

Share with your classmates what feelings this setting brings to you. Why do you think the writing works? What does the writer do to create a sense of place? For example, what is the role of the cow? The woods? The path? (If you think the writer has not done a good job, share your point of view!) Then interact with the thoughts and feelings of one other student.
