Unit 2 WorksheetTitle of Story:The ChrysanthemumsDate of Original Publication:1938Author’s Name: John SteinbeckBirth:1902Death: 1968Name of Main Character (Protagonist) and description of that character’s dominanttraits or features. Include the background and values of this character:The main character, or protagonist, in the story was Elisa Allen. She was a very hard-working gardener. She shows a great love for her chrysanthemums when explaining the complexity of caring for them to the man that stops by their farm to ensure that they do not die in the transplanting process. At the beginnings of the story it seemed that her husband, Henry, wasn’t too affectionate, so I feel like her hard work goes almost unnoticed and Henry takes it all for granted.Names of other characters with similar information. Also note what type of character you are discussing (antagonist, minor, peripheral):Henry, a minor character, was a farmer and wife of Elisa. He was very thrilled about selling his cows at the beginning of the story. It seems that he takes all the Elisa does for granted, even attempting to give her more work at the beginning of the story.
