Understanding the use of provocative sentence


Chapter 5

Post your initial response to the discussion topic or question. Each post should be 300-500 words and, ideally, will offer a detailed analysis or commentary on some aspect of the text. Respond in one of the following to ways:
Cite a provocative sentence from the text, and then analyze it. Discuss what is compelling, or interesting about it, and analyze its language, its imagery, and significance in terms of the larger thematic concern of travel.
Focus on once scene or thesis in the text and describe what is happening in it, how it connects to an important issue or problem, and why it is significant.
