and The Character’s Identity “I began to sustain the illusion that he was I, and therefore, by simple transposition,
that I was my father. This sensation persisted, kept cropping up all the time we were there.
It was not an entirely new feeling, but in this setting it grew much stronger.
I seemed to be living a dual existence. I would be in the middle of some simple act,
I would be picking up a bait box or laying down a table fork, or I
would be saying something, and suddenly it would be not
I but my father who was saying the words or making the gesture.
It gave me a creepy sensation.” Activity!!!! Read the following excerpt and then draw a picture of what you believe is being depicted in the passage.

Identity- The author uses imagery to show how he is morphing into his father, therefore describing his identity "I was right about the tar: it led to within half a mile of the shore" "It is strange how much you can remember about places like that once you allow your mind to return into the grooves which lead back. You remember one thing, and that suddenly reminds you of another thing." AP Rhetorical Devices Perspective: Narrator takes us through the story and shares his thoughts about it. Imagery: "I guess I remembered clearest of all the early mornings, when the lake was cool and motionless, remembered how the bedroom smelled of the lumber it was made of and the wet woods whose scent entered through the screen." Nostalgia: The desire to return in thought or fact to former time. Motif: Recurrent device- in this story the tar road comes up more than once throughout the story Language of Interpretation Deconstruction: The taking apart of a narrative to its essential parts to locate the objective and ideology of the author.
