Discussion Activity #1

Write an entry into the Bundren family saga — create a new character and voice appropriate to the novel and describe an encounter somewhere along their journey. You should consider carefully issues of voice, including point-of-view, the personality and tone of your character, the extent of the character’s knowledge of the events, and so on. A brief explanation should follow your “chapter,” giving a critical assessment of the choices you decided to make and why.
