Hi, Ivan Youve got some very good material here, but also a lot of information that wasnt asked for in terms of this assignment. You want to be sure you restrict the paper to discussing this one short story and that you focus on the themes, symbolism, and characters in the story and not on the social issues (which would be more of a paper for a different class). Youre very much on the right track, but need to narrow this down and focus on the story. The MLA formatting needs a little work, as well. Be sure to review the MLA guidelines to be sure your paper is in alignment with MLA style: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/mla_style/mla_formatting_and_style_guide/mla_general_format.html CRITICAL THINKING PROMPT: Once you have received your rough draft with the instructors feedback, think about how you can incorporate this weeks discussion of symbolism as you work to revise your paper. (Final paper is due Week 10 next week!) What characters or objects are symbolic (stand for other things)? For example, a rose may stand for love, and a thorn may stand for a painful aspect of love.
