Transcript of Setting

How is setting used in the stories we have read so far?
In "Story of an Hour" and "A & P"
"Story of an Hour"
•Historical: takes place when travel was still mainly by trains-during the author's era (late 1800’s) and when women did not have as may rights as their husbands. Consider how marriage was different then it is today.

•Geographical: Do we know as reader’s where this takes place? Is it necessary to the plot to know the exact location?

•Physical: takes place in a house and Louise Mallard’s bedroom

The setting foreshadows the freedom that Mrs. Mallard thinks she will experience upon her husband's death. Look back to Week 2 Recap.
