Parkinson 1 Jordan Parkinson Brother d'Evegnee ENG 251-03 19 May 2016 Analytical Assignment #2: A Good Man is hard to Find Analytical Question: What is the significance of the grandmother’s hat in the story? What does it symbolize? Analytical Assertion: That hat symbolizes the grandmother’s link to being “ladylike”, or to having manners and being a good person. It is the connection to a more civilized way of life. Reasons and Evidence: 1) Right before they embark on their trip the author describes the grandmother’s attire, beginning with the hat, and eventually writes, “In case of an accident, anyone seeing her dead on the highway would know at once that she was a lady.” This moment is not only a powerful foreshadowing of events to come, but it also displays early on that the grandmother at least considers herself a good person. The hat in connection with these two things becomes very powerful later on as the story progresses.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
