I missed this assignment and am trying to catch up!
1.List the characters in the story. Write one to two sentences on the defining characteristics of each one, providing at least one citation to illustrate your comments
2.Why do you think the story is called "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings" rather than "An Angel?"
3.How does the priest respond to the man with wings? What do you think his response symbolizes?
4.How do the villagers respond to the spider girl? What do you think their response symbolizes -- how does it relate to the rest of the story?
5.Write a three-paragraph comparison between themes in Márquez's "Old Man" and Kafka's "The Metamorphosis".
