-->On Wednesday, you will take a quiz on both Faulkner and Hemingway. Part of that quiz will be to create a thesis statement you could use for an essay about this story on the following Q3 prompt:

2006...Many writers use a country setting to establish values within a work of literature.  For example, the country may be a place of virtue and peace or one of primitivism and ignorance. Choose a novel or play in which such a setting plays a significant role. Then write an essay in which you analyze how the country setting functions in the work as a whole. Do not merely summarize the plot.
