Big Idea for Unit: Your World
Introduction to Setting
“fuels the drive to write” (Burroway 133).
“Virtually any writer you ask will profess a profound relation to place and time whether as a patriot, refugee, homebody, adventurer, flâneur (one who strolls around), or time traveler; and each will tell you that creating the sensuous particularity of a place and period is crucial to writing” (Burroway 133).
How does setting “fuel (your) drive to write”? (3-5 sentences)
Name and describe a setting that you have had “a profound relation to”? Explain what made this setting so significant for you. (5-10 sentences)
“If a piece of literature does not create the setting for us, if it seems to occur in no-time or in vague-place fuzzy-time, we cannot experience it, or else we must experience that vagueness itself as crucial to the action (emphasis mine)” (Burroway 133).
Your task is to write a ½ page description of this setting. Describe what you see. Imagine that you are actually standing in the viewpoint from which this picture was taken. What do your five senses notice? How do you interpret even the hard-to-see details (Look carefully)?
Compare your description with a partner’s. Explain the differences between your description and your partner’s.
