QUESTION: What does the author value or hate?


Review our reading up until now.

  1. Make a list of ideas, character traits, and people that the author seems to value or disdain in the novel.
  2. For each, discuss what part of the novel what part of the novel gives the impression that the author values or hates these ideas, people, or traits. In other words, find TBE + page numbers for your example.
  3. Then, deduce what messages, lessons, or insights into life we might infer. In other words, what themes are illustrated by these examples?
