Instructor's Note

Dylan’s assignment was to recall a person or a place and describe it over time in order to show “characterization,” differing emotive qualities that create a sense of roundness. This was an imaginative paper whereby the writer must create the illusion of place or person using concrete details, tags, or repeated images that give a sense of change. How does Dylan create the emotive qualities of place as he wanders to the ridge? How does Dylan capture the sense of change from one moment to the next? Identify the “tags” or repeated images that create emotions. What are those emotions?
