Jumping Frog, 104-108
Chopin, 441-442; Desirees Baby, 442-446.
Choose one author and discuss how he/she (Twain or Chopin) captures local color/regionalism in his/her writing in one of the short stories we read.
What aspects of the story specifically seem best to reflect an intimate knowledge of the region/customs in which the story is set?
How does the story’s setting in that particular region impact our understanding of the story? In other words, how/why is that specific place and time as a setting inherent to our interpretation/knowledge/appreciation of that story’s characters, events, etc.?
Note that you may need to do a bit of research to give yourself some context for place/time/author for this question. That’s okay; just please mention where you got any external information found beyond the book.
