This week’s journal allows you to consider James Knoll’s (attached file) argument. As you read, be careful to distinguish between the historical background information and the position he takes. Summarize his argument in a paragraph.
Then consider the following questions:
- What purpose does the lengthy historical overview serve in his overall argument?
- How does his argument help us to understand Christine’s decisions that build up to the novel’s final scene?
Support the analysis with direct quotations and paraphrases from the article attachment and book in a 2 to 4 page critical response.
