Consider the role of setting, or context. For example, a story that takes place in a wild and natural setting might include characters struggling against nature to survive. A story set in a city might include themes of alienation and anonymity because of the impersonal crowds and busy city life. Cultural contexts can combine with both urban and rural elements to produce further meaning, as well. Consider the following questions as you critically read the texts below: Does the protagonist conflict with the setting or have particular interactions with it?Does the protagonist’s relationship with the setting connect with his/her development as a character? Does the setting reveal other themes and conflicts?



This is the assignment prompt and text that will be used to complete the Proposal Final Paper Worksheet. Grammer and Spelling is a must. Please check and recheck spelling and grammer.

For your literary analysis essay, look at the guiding questions for the text you choose. You don’t necessarily need to answer all of these questions in your paper. The questions are there to help get you thinking in a direction that will be more likely to lead you to a successful literary analysis.

Prompt 3 ( This is the prompt number)

“A Worn Path”(Eudora Welty, 1941) – 5.3 in Journey into Literature (THIS IS THE TOPIC I CHOSE) I have attached a file with the story from the text book.

Guiding Questions:

1. Clugston suggests that “[t]he setting in this story is in a particular season — the

Christmas season.” Why is this significant considering the plot?

2. Clugston (2011) further writes: “The physical setting changes during Phoenix Jackson’s

journey. How does each environment she encounters reflect her character?”

3. Phoenix Jackson encounters many obstacles on her journey. To what non-physical


challenges do they allude?
