Resolved Question: Ray Bradbury Short Story
Our English teacher had us read the short story "Embroidery" by Ray Bradbury.
I thought it was simple, and easy to understand. But now....
she is asking us to characterize the characters ( select major characters, identify the characters, provide traits, and describe each)
The problem is that if you have ever read this you will know that the characters are poorly described, if at all. Now, i really don't know what to do.
Could anyone please offer some help?
Link to short story: http://www.englishandmedia.co.uk/publications/downloads/pdfs/TRCSample.pdf
just scroll down to almost the end.
THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERRRRY MUCH (:
