Pick a short story from this class (other than “A&P” or “Godfather Death”) that speaks to you or that you can relate to on some deeper level. Part of being human is relating our own lives to fictional constructs (play, movies, songs, novels, poems, and short stories). I have shared some of my life experiences in regards to how they relate to these stories and how I use my life stories to relate to these short stories. I would like you to do the same. Analyze how one of these stories speaks to you and your experiences. Perhaps it is not your life, but the life of a friend or family member you know who you can see reflected in one of these stories. Only share what you feel comfortable sharing. Then reply to two of your classmates.
The stories are “The Story of an Hour” & “The Flowers”&“Powder” & “The Lottery”&“Drinking Coffee Elsewhere”
