Darnay in Prison

Work Time

Join a partner as directed and do the following.

  • Read and annotate the designated passages, stopping after every two or three sentences to check in with each other for understanding.
  • Note new vocabulary words.
  • Find and underline words that suggest a symbolic or metaphoric meaning for the prison. For example, if the prison is compared to a belly, then the metaphor might be that Darnay felt as though he had been eaten, maybe by a monster.
