Consider the fact that all of these short stories were written during a different period in history. It is no secret that point of view changes through time. Our reactions to conflict can be very different depending on when in history the conflict occurs. Think of one situation or conflict that occurred in the short story you read. Explain the situation or conflict, and the character’s reaction to it. Next explain how you think someone from a different time in history would have reacted to the same kind of situation or conflict. Identify the time in history you are discussing and the way in which you think someone of that time would handle the same situation or conflict. For the short story "The Necklace".
