Write a literary analysis of the short story, focusing on two or three connected elements like point of view, theme, symbolism, character, setting, tone, style, etc.

Making a connection between two or more elements will help you broaden your discussion.
This is a fairly short paper, though, so don’t try to tackle too much!
It is important to write purposefully and avoid simply re-telling the story. In other words, do not write a plot outline or summary! This assignment is to analyze:
What is the author “saying” to the reader?
What literary techniques and conventions does he or she use to say it?
What is the “point” of the story?
Does it show us anything worthwhile about people or about life?
