So ms. Sue before you say that theme of story be don’t look back or you be destroyed.
ms. sue before I start this paragraph, I also need to put 5 quotes in paragraph from story, which u think be best ones to put in there?

  • English -

    You should choose the five quotes that mean something to you.

  • English -

    well they have to relate to theme so it be :

    - i sat staring at the telephone for a long time and thought about statues

    -And when i left she kept expecting me to come back like eurydice waiting and i didn't even look back ( i not really get this that mean he not care for his wife)

    -the phone could brighten up the night; once call to someone. A name somewhere in the directory

    -id have liked to have been on the moon with an endless supply of lightbulbs; wire the moon to shine away the night.

    -i couldn't assemble the words to build the picture the way it really was.

    there be better ones than these that represent theme?

  • English -

    Those quotes are good.

    Eurydice was the wife of Orpheus. In the myth, Orpheus rescued her from death. But because he looked back, Hades took her back to death.

    I think he's saying that because he didn't look back, he gave her a chance for a life of her own.
