In this paper, your assignment is to respond to the critic:
Do you agree or disagree with the critic? Consider the specific criticisms that he raises. Do you think they are valid? What do you see in the story that the critic doesn’t see? What might make the story more effective? Must a story have a “plot?” Must it “move you?” Must a story be longer to be effective?
It’s fine to agree with the critic or to disagree, but be sure to start your paper with a clear, debatable thesis, and then support that thesis with specific examples from the story. This is a short paper, so limit your topic
