Let’s focus on Wood and Prose, both last week’s and this week’s readings. Disregard the assignment to read further into a prior novel.
From at least three (and ideally all five) of the following five selections, 1) choose a point that speaks to you and 2) furnish an example from fiction — your own work or somebody else’s, on or off the syllabus — that illustrates it. 3) Add one or two sentences explaining your choice — what resonated in the Wood or Prose, how the example does what it does.
Wood: Sympathy & Complexity (169-180)
Prose: Gesture (209-232)
Wood: Language (181-212)
Wood: Dialogue (213-222)
Prose: Dialogue (143-192)
