Looking through magazines in class (and anything at home that reminds you of Hemingway or one of his characters or even settings) cut and paste a collage that incorporates your understanding and or feelings of the text. There must be something from every text we’ve read: Indian Camp, The Doctor and the Doctor’s Wife, The End of Something, Three Day Blow, Cross Country Snow and The Battler. You are to organize your thoughts for the writing part of this project, to be fully explained in your presentations.

You can put pictures, colors, leaves, flowers, quotations from the stories, your own drawings and designs. Most importantly, have fun!!!

With the collage please include a two page essay (front and back of a sheet will suffice) explainging all the aspects of your creative poster. You will present your work on Friday.

Inking Your Thinking

“On his way back to the living room he passed a mirror in the dining room and looked in it. His face looked strange. He smiled at the face in the mirror and it grinned back at him. He winked at it and went on.” (HEMINGWAY 121, from “The Three Day Blow”.)

What does the narrative suggest when he describes Nick as two different people when he looks in the mirror?

Share and discuss Inking Your Thinking responses.
