Product Description
A detailed analysis of Eudora Welty’s short story, “A Worn Path,” including the following: its plot; the natural and personal obstacles which old Phoenix Jackson faces; why she is making this perilous trip; the setting of the story; its point of view; symbolism in Phoenix’s names; her “path” perhaps being symbolic of that of Christ to the cross; and Welty’s own comments about this, her most popular short story. My handout, which has blanks that your students can fill in, is suitable for a homework assignment or as an in-class activity. You may also want to incorporate some information (such as the symbolism of the names, which in its depth is unique to my handout) in your own lecture notes or other class activities. An answer key is provided on a separate page at the end of the handout. Prepared by Professor William Tarvin, Ph.D., who has published many articles on literature in scholarly journals.
