I have two discussions, Please write for each one around 150 words, topics are mentioned below.
1. “A Good Man is Hard to Find” by Flannery O’Connor
Topic: Up until now you have read articles written to inform or persuade readers about something. This piece, however, is a short story or a work of fiction. Usually fiction is written to entertain the readers, though certainly authors can have messages within them.
For this discussion post, I would like you to answer 2 questions: a) what made this more difficult to read than some of the other reading selections? b) What does the title mean?
2. Read “A&P” by John Updike
Prompt: This story presents a seemingly minor event at the supermarket as the cause of major change for the narrator. Has there ever been a similar event in your life? Why do small things seem to make the most impact upon us?
