Homework Help: Literature

Posted by mysterychicken on Tuesday, November 10, 2009 at 3:09pm.

'One of the special gifts of fiction is its ability to allow us to walk in someone else's shoes and learn through a character's experience. How did the short story Marigolds help you discover something new about yourself, other people, or life? Explain what you discovered and the reasons for your discovery. Be sure to describe how the development of character and theme enhanced what you learned.'

This story helped me discover what it was like for Lizabeth to lose her innocence; She said that after her marigolds incident, she looked beyond herself and into the depths of another person. That was the beginning of compassion, and one can not have both compassion and innocence. The experience of leaving innocence has happend to me as well, but not in the same way, so I can relate to her.

Is this answer alright?

Thanks
