In literature, characters often are beset with scars or flaws that are used as literary tools to highlight important themes or issues the author wants to address.
In One Hundred Years of Solitude, there are several characters who are marked with physical and/or personality scars that highlight Marquez's many purposes found within this work. This week, your task is to delve into the purpose of such markings and make analytical connections to their significance and relevance in today's world.
Here's what to do:
1. Watch the Prezi presentation that highlights important points on character markings from chapter 21 of How To Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas Foster.
NO CHARACTER CAN BE USED MORE THAN TWICE!
3. Choose a classmate's response, and argue AGAINST his or her position. Be sure to support your thoughts with textual evidence. This is to be completed by Saturday, November 12th by 11:59 a.m. You can only respond to someone who does not already have a reply. In the event that everyone has a response and you have not yet responded, then you may reply to someone else. This portion will count as a 50 point grade.
