received word of her husband?s death? Make a prediction about how Mrs. Mallard will deal with her husband?s death.

etc.)?

 


 

9. After Ransie and Ariela get divorced, what is ironic about their behavior? What does this reveal about their situation?

 


 

10. What is the ?lesson of life? that Ransie and Ariela learn?

 


 

11. The story ends up where it began with the hen swaggering down the main street of the ?settlement,? swaggering

 

foolishly. How do you think this image helps to symbolize (or represent) the overall theme (or meaning) of the text? Is this

 

ending ironic? Why or why not?

 


 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------?The Story of an Hour? and ?The Whirligig of Life?

 


 


 


 

What are the similarities and differences between the two stories? In your answer, you may want to discuss marriage,

 

irony, and themes (or lessons learned about life).
