Kakos' 6th Hour

Reactions and comments from my sixth hour Honors American Literature class.


My favorite place in the world to be is underwater. My second favorite place is the front of a classroom.

The Village

I had to cut today's discussion short because we needed to edit our letters, but many of you didn't get to finish arguing your points. Here are a few questions I'd still like to discuss via the blog (feel free to deviate and create your own questions if these don't do it for you):

One of the elders declares that "The world moves for love. It kneels before it in awe." Does this hold true in The Village?
Did the village elders succeed in their original mission?
Does society create evil or control the evil that rests innately in individuals?
Do The Village and The Crucible essentially tell the same story?
Are the characters cowardly? Courageous?
Noah? Ivy? Lucius? Kevin the park ranger?

Discuss amongst yourselves.
