Sherwood Anderson’s Poems
Submit a two 250-300 word postings to respond to two of the following questions. Submit your postings by the date and time specified on the calendar of the syllabus. For options 1 and 2, think about Sherwood Anderson’s definition of a “grotesque.” 1. In “Hands,” if Adolph Myers was innocent, why did the men of the town quickly allow Wing to be beaten and then attempt to lynch him? What are the effects of this trauma on the man? 2. “Adventure” depicts a young woman who changes from making a bold proposal for her and Ned’s future to someone who is stuck in the past. Why did Alice not follow through with her original plan, how does she attempt to change her situation, and why does she fail?
