Question 1: From ERNEST HEMINGWAY'S Big Two-Hearted River: Part I
Although it can be easy to miss, Nick is suffering from what we now know as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The way Nick believes he can heal his body and mind is to fish and camp in nature. In a time when PTSD wasn't recognized, how does Hemingway highlight Nick's mental and physical condition? Use specific examples from the text. Responses should be at least 200 words.
Question 2: From the following:
"The Wrysons" by John Cheever
"Going After Cacciato" by Tim O'Brien
"Somewhere for Everyone" by John Grisham
"Good Country People" by Flannery O'Connor
"Sonny's Blues" by James Baldwin
"The Angel Esmerelda" by Don Delillo
Choose one of the literary pieces found in the "Other Perspectives" section of your text. Discuss the groups represented there. To use an example from a prior week, we looked at Jackson Jackson's status as Native American, but he is also a part of the homeless community. He is an alcoholic, a father, a former husband, a man, and a college dropout. Each of these contributes to his position as an American. When you choose your piece, discuss how all the characteristics fit together to form the person you read about. Your response should be at least 200 words.
