In chapter 4 Jack wears a mask which gives him the power and courage to kill the pig.
We all wear masks of sorts at different times in our lives. [Describe a time when you wore a symbolic mask. Why did you wear it? Was it helpful or hurtful? What did you learn from the experience? Explain.]
For example, have you heard sport players say, “Put your game faces on” when preparing for a game? This is the same idea.
Jack planned his new face. He made one cheek and one eye-socket white, then he rubbed red over the other half of his face and slashed a black bar of charcoal across from right ear to left jaw. He looked in the pool for his reflection, but his breathing troubled the mirror…He knelt, holding the shell of water. A rounded patch of sunlight fell on his face and a brightness appeared in the depths of the water.
He looked in astonishment, no longer at himself but at an awesome stranger. He spilt the water and leapt to his feet, laughing excitedly. Beside the pool his sinewy body held up a mask that drew their eyes and appalled them. He began to dance and his laughter became a bloodthirsty snarling…and the mask was a thing on its own, behind which Jack hid, liberated from shame and self-consciousness (63-64)
Create an artistic impression that presents your interpretation of Jack and the mask in chapter 4. Do not compose an illustration, or a picture of what is described in the text; rather, compose something that symbolizes or represents the feeling, emotion, or meaning related to a scene. Be ready to show your artistic impression and explain it to us.
