Hi, I am required to connect "The Catcher in the Rye", "The Grapes of Wrath", "The Scarlet Letter", and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" together via concept map. Before I attempt to do so, I could use some help identifying the key parts of each book. I have a vague understanding of all four books. I believe each story is about a person, or family, who is being treated poorly or on the 'wrong' side of society, like Hester being labeled for her life and set apart from everyone, the Joads with no money after losing farms to rich owners, Holden refusing to accept the world, Huckleberry Finn wanting to live his own life.
That is my understanding of the books and how they relate to each other. I just don't know how to connect them together though. Please help me!
I urge you to go back and reread each book and take notes on the characters and the plots. You could use note cards and use a color code for each book. After you've finished rereading and taking notes, check to see what other similarities you have found.
