Chopin's "The Storm"

This week's literary club meeting discussion was supposed to be about Kate Chopin's "The Storm,"but it was cancelled due to bad weather. This work was chosen because "Nathaniel Hawthorne has a reputation for ambiguity, intentionally leaving his stories ambiguous and open-ended" (Guth & Rico, 2003).

â?¢Choose 1 of the following statements as your thesis:
â?¦How does Chopin use the symbol of the color of white in the story?
â?¦Can the description of the weather be a warning to the main character?
â?¦Do you think the storm is over or that a storm could be brewing later?
â?¦How can the title can be used as a metaphor for the theme?
â?¢Explain your reasoning/rationale for your interpretation.
â?¢Argue why your interpretation is convincing.
â?¢Support your position with solid arguments and cited evidence from the story itself.
