English III Honors Summer Assignment
Read A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway and Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer.
The words "bravery" and "courage" are echoed through A Farewell to Arms, and much of Into the Wild reflects on whether or not what McCandless did was brave and/or heroic. Choose one character/person from one of the books, and in a well-developed response (250-500 words), argue whether that character/person deserves to be called brave and heroic. Support with specific examples. Email this response to Ms. Baulch (email@example.com) no later than August 10.
