Today in class, we went over your answers to the questions for the short story, "You Are Now Entering the Human Heart." Next, we read in class an excerpt of Isak Dinesen's memoir, Out of Africa, entitled, "The Iguana." Here is a link to the text:
After reading, "The Iguana," I introduced an in-class narrative writing assignment centered around the concept of desire, which is explored in "The Iguana." Here is a link to the the in-class writing assignment. This is not intended to be homework, and we will have more time to work on it in class at our next class meeting.
Lastly, I gave a homework packet with a short story and some questions. This will be due at our next class meeting.
