Prompts (choose 1 and answer in 3-5 paragraphs, with an introduction, body, and conclusion). Label your response indicating the prompt you chose. Complete only one prompt. If you complete more than one, I will only grade the first one. You may choose Prompt A, B, or C to write about Atwood, or D to write about Asghar. Use the questions in the prompts to create a focused thesis statement.. Prompt A. How and why does the protagonist’s attitude toward her own situation change over the course of the story? How and why does she paradoxically become more alive and powerful after she “dies”? Prompt B. We are never told exactly when or where this story takes place. Based on evidence from the text, what is your best guess? Be sure to explain why. Do you think it matters when or where the story is set? And why might Atwood not have provided more obvious information about the setting? Prompt C. What conflicts does the protagonist’s condition create for the story’s other characters? How do they each understand the protagonist’s condition? Be sure not to miss characters! Prompt D: In Asghar’s poem, she’s speaking as Pluto. Citing specific language from the poem, how would you describe Pluto’s tone? Is it possible Asghar is speaking about something other than Pluto? Explain why or why not.
