Today is a reading day for the rest of OMM. In terms of your journal prompts, please focus on these two areas:
- Continue to explore “things of merit” and “things of concern” (eyebrow raisers) in the novel. You started this in Ch. 2, so go back and add in elements from Ch. 3-6). Be as specific as possible about this.
- Choose one of the following topics and explain/theorize about its role in the novel. Be sure to use SPECIFIC EVIDENCE (including page numbers):
- The American Dream
- God figures
- Dreams of the future
We’ll likely spend the rest of the week addressing these two prompts.
