Question description

You must submit Two journal entries this week. These entries should be 250 words, and should discuss your reactions to the readings. They may be reflections on the ways readings remind you of real life situations. They may express your joys or frustrations with the literature. They may discuss occasions when you shared your thoughts about your American Literature readings with your friends, co-workers, or children.

Journal Entry One: Is John Smith a reliable narrator? Do you trust the way he describes the events that occurred? Why does he write in the third person point of view? Isn't he describing his experience? What does he accomplish by this?

Journal Entry Two: What is the point of "Rip Van Winkle?" Is it only a funny story or is there something else going on? Can this story be read as being symbolic of the struggle between America and England with Rip representing America and Dame Van Winkle representing England? Are there any similarities between the conflict between these two and the conflict between the two nations?
