For this discussion, I’d like you to post your two favorite passages full of descriptive details from Ch. 5-11 in Cannery Row. After each passage, write briefly about why you think that it’s beautiful, or why you appreciate the details in that particular passage. DO NOT state that the passage simply helps you “visualize” a scene or object. This is too obvious. Go beyond that now. How does it help you visualize, or why how do the details help that object seem original or new (not generic)?
As your classmates post, read through some of their answers to get ideas for why certain passages are beautiful, and to also get a sense for all the different ways Steinbeck uses detail in his novel. Comments are not mandatory but are noted toward participation! The Discussion will close to commenting on Friday at 11:59pm (PST).
