Gothic Fishbowl: A Rose for Emily

This is our second-to-last fishbowl, my friends, so let's make it noteworthy.

Remember that you are using the blog and hotseating to show me that you have read and thought about the story. Each outer circle blog is equal to 10 points in the listening and discussing category.

Enjoy, and again, get yourself into a hotseat!

Hello, outer circle!

Remember that you want to be participating consistently from the beginning of the discussion through the very end. As always, keep bringing in passages as often as you can.

Fantastic job last time, outer circle. Bravo!

Keep bringing in quotations, asking wonderful questions, and showing how your mind was working as you read this bizarre but classic Poe tale.
