  1. The sites can help you but it is up to you to read the novella carefully to find the information. Imagery touches different senses. How many of the 5 senses can you find that Hemingway touches here?

  2. Sra is right. You need to read the book AND the websites she's already given you. And it's YOU who must find the answers to these questions. Your teacher is looking for YOUR IDEAS, not anyone else's.

    Once you've written up your thoughts, be sure to repost if you'd like someone here to comment on your thinking.
