Learning Unit 4

In both Uncle Tom’s Cabin and Life in the Iron Mills, the narrators often seem to talk to the readers as they narrate. They often comment on what they’re describing and talk to the reader about what they’re describing as if they were having a conversation. In both texts, the narrators speak to the reader almost like tour guides, as if the reader is from someplace far away, and are being exposed to a completely new environment.  Sometimes, the narrator seems to express emotion about the characters, as if he or she was a character too.

I chose the photo of a street because it reminds me of when Deborah had to walk to the mills to bring Hugh food.

One Response to Learning Unit 4

  1. I agree with this post. In my response I also discussed the similarities between the types of narration used and how they were used to convey the story to the reader.
