|Identity Development||Reflection of the Summer Reading Book the Madonnas of Echo Park||Due 10/31/2014||Responses should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 1st. Written responses should make some kind of interpretive claim about one of the prompts in 500 to 1000 words. Files should be sent in .doc or .docx format.||“I'm not sure this is my old neighborhood anymore. I drive in, visit my mother, then drive out. I haven't explored around here for years for a reason; Echo Park has a hard time letting you go.” (Skyhorse 153)|
Please respond to one of the following:
1) What does it mean for a neighborhood to have “a hard time letting you go”? Explain in context of the novel as well as from your own experiences. Will your hometown let you go? How might this process of resistance and/or release affect your understanding of your own identity?
2) Many of the characters in the book have identities that are deeply rooted in and connected to their neighborhood of Echo Park. Characters who relocate thus often find themselves struggling to adjust emotionally, unsure of how they define themselves in relation to both their old and new surroundings. Do you believe your self-identity is tied to the area in which you grew up? In what ways? How do you imagine that identity might be challenged and/or changed when you leave home and come to Lehigh? How will your new neighborhood of South Bethlehem influence your self-perception?
3) In The Madonnas of Echo Park, it is widely acknowledged that the neighborhood of Echo Park changes dramatically over time. However, characters have differing reactions to such change: think, for example, aboutAurora Esperanza and Freddy, who struggle with acclimating to those changes, while characters like Duchess and Angie seem to readily accept them. How do you imagine you will react to perceived changes in your hometown, after you have spent significant time away at college?
