Presenting a Short Story

Here´s what you have to do:

Choose a short short story you like and prepare a short presentation of 10 minutes. Include, among other things, the following:
- the author,
- the plot,
- the setting,
- the characters,
- stylistic devices,
- historical/social background

Give your opinion, your interpretation of the story! A handout will not be needed, a copy of the story would be nice.
