NOTE: This entry is ONLY for Per 1, 2 and 3
This is a wide open question for all of you who manage to read the first 50-ish pages of Dickens’ Tale of Two Cities (as you are supposed to do — he smiles) ahead of Monday’s class (so you can do this entry — he smiles, once again).
I’m curious what stood out FOR YOU on the “it grabbed my attention/interest” level with regards to the way the novel started:
- The famous — oh, so famous, actually — opening lines of the novel?
- Writing Style?
- Something else entirely?
Response: 3+ paragraphs, 5+ sentences each. If you get stuck, start with a quotation and then explain why it caught your eye (even if you aren’t entirely sure where it’ll lead story-wise in the 350 pages to come).
