Define those instances that make each character act in the way he does with his wife.
You must respond to both of the stories that you were assigned to read. Your essay must be no less than 500 words. NOTE: Quotations from the stories do NOT count in the 500 words. Pay close attention to the check list given at the beginning of the year.
Discuss the effect the settings have on the main characters from each of the stories. Cite specific evidence that relate to your response. Evaluate each character and hypothesize and produce evidence that interprets/substantiates how each one changes from the beginning to the end. Define those instances that make each character act in the way he does with his wife.
Then summarize the external and internal conflicts that affect each character by citing specific evidence, and more importantly the conflicts or effects from the blind man in “Cathedral” and the stranger in “Young Goodman Brown”.
