The paper is based on the poem but drawn from your own life:
On the assumption that we all have a “pennycandystore” in our past, I’m asking that you identify your pennycandystore and write a 2-page paper discussing its importance in your life, being as specific as possible in order to recreate and bring it to life. It can be a place, an event, an experience, a time, a turning point. You would quote from or refer to a line in the poem and integrate into your essay.
Please interpret this topic in whatever way that works best for you in the writing of the paper.
If you have any questions, just let me know.
