A Trip into the Wilderness (The Innocent)

      To set the scene for American Literature, read the following story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

      In class this semester, we will talk about several different literary personae.  Ichabod Crane is what we would call an Innocent (click to read).    

     Knowing nothing about this term yet, I would like you to do a Precis (an evaluation tool to be handed in).  After you do, in the box to the right, write a, OCI Response to the following prompt:

“Could you be friends with Ichabod Crane?

     In responding, use Device #4 (Antithesis), capitalizing the places where you use it.  Please e-mail a copy to yourself, and please make the subject line say, “Last Name – Blog 1” (please continue this pattern as you go through this semester’s blog entries)
