DUE JANUARY 22
You will be adding a story to the collected tales that make up the book Winesburg,
OH by Sherwood Anderson. Your
story will be original and creative, but will also have to follow the
"rules" that Anderson employed in writing the book:
character will be a
"grotesque" in some way, there will be something about him
or her that he or she can not deal with and that overwhelms him or
her--some idea that can not be ignored or moved past.
George will have to be mentioned in the
story somehow, since he is the thread that ties all of the stories
you will have to attempt to use some of the same
types of descriptions--where this person lives in Winesburg, how the
grotesque concept was acquired, etc.
Have fun with this. As long as the person is a grotesque in some way, you pretty
much can't go wrong.
story will be a minimum of 3 pages typed, with 1" margins,
