Theme of Border: A Journey to the Edge of Europe by Kafka Kassandra.
We identified themes for the sections of Border. Part one was magic, part two was displacement, part three was loss, part four …yet to be identified.
Complete your reading of the book, think about a theme for part four, and using one of the themes, trace it through the book. How does Kassandra evoke the theme in each section (and throughout the book)? Consider the structure of the book and each section as we discussed in class. What role do the beginning quotes play, the word discussions, etc.? How does the language she use affect your sense of the theme?
Your paper should be at least 3-4 pages and include examples from the text to illustrate your points.
