HU300-10 Discussion Questions
In Anzia Yezierskaâ€™s short story, â€œThe Lost Beautifulness,â€ the protagonist Hanneh Hayyeh longs for something to call her own.
In your response to question one, consider the following questions:
Does the piece give you sympathy for any of the characters? Do you dislike any of the characters? How can a writer add a “universal appeal” for their piece of literature and create a strong link to their audience? For example, course text authors Janaro & Altshuler (2012) refer to epiphany, which provides an â€œinsight into life or human natureâ€ (97). How is epiphany demonstrated in â€œThe Lost Beautifulnessâ€? Incorporate the Unit 6 reading material in your response; include APA formatting.
