Using Quotes

Using Quotes
  • After you use the quote, explain HOW this quote helps support your argument.
    • Remember our argument is about how Walter Mitty is a round character.
    • Example: When Mitty’s wife nags him upon her return from the hairdressers, Mitty defends himself by saying, “I was thinking…does it ever occur to you that I am thinking?” This shows he is a round character because he is capable of thinking complex thoughts, and furthermore, it shows that he is an individual with his own thoughts who is not just a mere pawn of his wife.
