  “Cathedral.” (Ch. 3) Due 4 hour

Read the story “Cathedral” by Raymond Carver (pages 103-113); Part 1, Chapter 3).  Stories explore some aspect of human experience.  Good stories cause the reader to think more deeply about how people interact with each other or with the world they live in.

Discuss how the story “Cathedral” explores human experience, giving details from the story.  What do we, as readers, learn about human interactions from this story?  What is the significance of drawing the cathedral? 

Your answer should demonstrate thoughtful analysis, using elements of the story to support your point.  You should make a short comment (about a paragraph long, at least 100 words) and you should respond to a comment by another student.  Superficial comments will receive a lower grade; comments that show engagement with the story on a deeper level will receive a higher grade.

For the topic, put your name first, then what you want to focus on in your discussion.  For example, Brown: Stereotypes.
