Homework Help: english

Posted by Yi on Wednesday, September 27, 2006 at 6:09am.

In the Book "The English Patient".How does the landscape of the novel--the Villa San Girolamo, the country around it, and the boundary between the two--reflect the inner lives of its inhabitants? Why do you think that Ondaatje has chosen Tuscany as the setting for his story? What significance do other landscapes, like the desert and the English countryside, hold for the story and its characters?


Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Since this book also refers to Rudyard Kipling's "Kim" you might want to read that as well for some comparisons. The following site will give you a great deal of information on "The English Patient."

The setting is like the "back drop" of a play or the "back ground" of a painting!
