"My Life's Sentences" by Jhumpa Lahiri

Please click here for the link to the essay!  Read and QCOP it and try to "think outside the box" by connecting the essay to Morrison's "Reader as Artist."


So, what helpful hints can I give you for tomorrow?  Well, since I did not give you questions to focus on, your interpretation of the texts must serve as your compass.  

Be prepared to think outside the box!  Connect the two pieces to one another, but be aware that they hold distinct differences as well.  Think about the purposes of each--do they accomplish their goals?  What sentences and lines struck you most?  What did these lines make you think of?


I am looking forward to tomorrow--in many ways, your responses set the stage for the rest of the year!  Get ready to impress!
