Read the short story “Mother Sauvage” by Guy de Maupassant before answering this three-part request:

1. Identify THREE of these literary elements in the story, and explain how you recognize them:

o Plot

o Character

o Setting

o Diction

o Theme

2. Of the three you described above, choose ONE literary element, and list ten keywords in the story that relate to that element. 

3. Annotate a section of the story that elucidates the literary element.  For example, highlight any of the keywords you identified.  Also, add your own comments in the margins. Take a screenshot (or a picture if you’re using a print version) of your annotated section of the story. Save it as a PDF, and attach it.
