Question description

1. Give us brief background information/analysis about the story and/or author. (Be sure to include your source(s); no Wikipedia!)

2. State the one-sentence summary of this story (the bare-bones plot synopsis). Then, summarize the theme of the story, as you see it, in one sentence.

3. Do certain words, passages of dialogue or description, or situations seem to represent the theme most clearly? Are there recurring images, concepts, or structures (or contrasting ones) in the story? What might those represent?

4. How do the work's craft elements combine to develop the theme?

5. Comment on the author's use of dialogue and whether it's effective, based on what you've learned about the craft element of dialogue. Does the author use an equal balance of scene and summary?
