Annotation Questions for The Awakening by Kate ChopinTarget Annotation (to annotate for a specific purpose)•To answer a question•To write an essay•To prepare for a seminar or class•To review for an examPrompt A: The 18th century British novelist Laurence Sterne wrote, “No body, but he who has felt it, can conceive what a plaguing thing it is to have a man’s mind torn asunder by two projects of equal strength, both obstinately pulling in a contrary direction at the same time.”From The Awakening choose a character (not necessarily the protagonist) whose mind is pulled in conflicting directions by two compelling desires, ambitions, obligations, or influences. Then, in a well-organized essay, identify each of the two conflicting forces and explain how this conflict within one character illuminates the meaning of the work as a whole. (1999 AP exam)
