“A White Heron”( Answer two questions on this story)


(you can pick whatever two you want to answer from the list below)

I attached the story, I just need ONE page document.

Read “The Cask of Amontillado” and post responses to TWO

questions below:

Topics to consider for “A White Heron” by Jewett:

  • How would you describe Sylvia? Is it significant that she has few friends? Why did Jewett select the name Sylvia (as opposed to say, Mary, Rose, Anne, etc.)?
  • What does the ornithologist represent? What does he want and how is it in conflict with what Sylvia wants? Why does she refuse the money?
  • What point of view is the story written in? Does it change? How? Why?
  • Look at the last two paragraphs. How do you account for the switch to “you, you,” and “look, look”? Does that have a particular audience in addition to Sylvia?
  • How does the story portray women as being in sync with nature? Do you think that is true? Why or why not?
