2.1 Discussion board

Introduction
The wonderful thing about graphic novels is that their images give them the opportunity to show readers what their characters actually look like, as well as what the setting looks like. They can direct the reader’s attention with pictures, words, and the juxtaposition of the two. 

Initial Post Instructions
Consider “Prisoner on the Hell Planet: A Case History” and “The Veil” as opposed to “The Gilded Six-Bits” and “A Rose for Emily.”  How does being able to see the setting and character alter your reading experience?  Do you find that you focus more on location in one form or more on character in another? 

Additionally, examine the sparse language used in both graphic stories.  How important is the visual content to understanding the story?  Do you feel either of these stories would be effective in a text only format?

2.2 Discussion Board

Introduction
Every setting in a story carries certain associations that an author uses to establish a certain atmosphere. Characters in the story respond to the setting, because the characters have feelings; and you respond to the setting, too, when you enter into the world of the story.  

Initial Post Instructions
Examine how setting creates a feeling or atmosphere for you the reader and for the characters in Hurston’s story. How do you think setting influenced the feelings and actions of the characters?
