Senselessness in The Road--due Friday, February 11


Type a paragraph/section from The Road here, selecting a passage that is not mere description or dialogue. Select a passage that seems entirely senseless or pointless--a passage that "doesn't make sense." Then, attempt to make sense out of the passage by answering these questions in 200+ words:


What meaning can you create?

What can you infer from the passage?


What symbology can you extract?


What major themes are likely present?


What can you pull out from "reading between the lines"?
