In well-developed paragraphs answers questions 1-4 as typed below and complete the chart on symbolism (described below). I estimate each answer will require 200-300 words. Be sure to use quoted references to the text in your answers. Need to answer both part I and part II.

Part I: Analysis Questions on Amy Tan’s “A Pair of Tickets”

1. In Amy Tan’s “A Pair of Tickets,” language plays a key role in the process of the character Jing-Mei’s “becoming Chinese.” How does Jing-Mei feel about speaking Chinese? Look through the story for references to language, especially the names of the three sisters.

2. There are many changing images in the story. Look, for instance, at the images that Jing-Mei has of her sisters and her physical image of herself. Another recurring pattern is that of photography, especially the Polaroid pictures. Polaroid pictures at the time were instantly ejected from the camera, but it took several minutes for the chemicals to develop the picture fully. How does Tan use this fact as a way of developing the idea of “becoming Chinese”?

3. Loss is an important theme in this story, beginning with Jing-Mei’s recent loss of her mother. Why does Jing-Mei feel that she disappointed her mother? Why did her mother abandon her twin babies? How is Jing-Mei’s sense of identity tied up with her mother’s story?

4. After Jing-Mei meets her sisters, she says, “And now I also see what part of me is Chinese. It is so obvious. It is my family. It is in our blood. After all these years, it can finally be let go.” What does the final “it” refer to here?

Part II: Research the term “Southern Gothic”; analyze O’Connor and Faulkner

Research the Southern Gothic, using two scholarly sources (no “.com” sources). Include a works cited section with the two sources following this chart. Complete the chart with sample content from “A Good Man is Hard to Find” and “A Rose for Emily.” Include three examples from each short story. (You can copy this chart and type into it. Turnitin will accept the chart).


Element of the Gothic. (please explain the element in 2-3 sentences, and cite the source from which you got the information)
