Short Analysis Essay
Task 
Write a 700-800 word essay comparing and contrasting the following two stories: “A Very Short Story” and “The Colonel.” Your analysis should focus on the stories’ settings. 
Your essay must include a thesis statement and provide evidence (in the form of quotations) from the stories to support your claims. How do the stories’ settings, locations, or environments influence the behaviour or emotions of the characters?  How are the authors’ ideas about the settings communicated to the reader? How do the settings reflect societal structures, institutions, pressures, or expectations? Analyze your evidence carefully. You are not expected to do any research for this paper; however, if you borrow any idea(s) and/or language from any external source, including your instructor, you must cite this. Review the course outline for more information on academic honesty and plagiarism.
