Novel by Daniel Wallace “Big Fish” Read and follow the directions very carefully. In a well-developed paragraph of at 350 words, respond to the following question: Keeping in mind the title Big Fish, what is the significance of the many references to water throughout the novel? Consider the opening chapter The Day He Was Born as well as The Girl in the River and In Which He Goes Fishing. What elements of symbolism or foreshadowing do you see at work? Requirements: Write a paragraph of at least 350 words in response to the above prompt; please submit a paragraph rather than an essay. This includes the first word of the response to the last word of the response; the title, heading, and Work(s) Cited page are not included in the word count. Follow the MLA Format instructions from Module 0. An example essay can be found on page 161 of The Tiger Guide to Writing. This will give you an idea of what is expected regarding the format that should be followed when organizing your essay. Use in-text, parenthetical citations in MLA format each time you paraphrase, summarize, or quote directly from a source. Include a corresponding MLA-formatted Works Cited page. Use third-person academic voice. Do NOT use first person (I, me, my) or second person (you, your). Use the literary present tense (say “the narrator writes in her journal” not “the narrator wrote in her journal”). Save and submit your work as either Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) or a Rich Text Document (.rtf). The Originality Report generated by Turn It In must not exceed 25%. Submit work early to review the report and contact your instructor with questions.
