“The Enormous Radio” by John Cheever

I’m working on a English question and need guidance to help me study.

Look at the Attached document, and use it to address the following questions:

  • What issues about privacy (Links to an external site.) does Cheever raise in this story?
  • What are the differences in the responses the characters are having?
  • How might we use this story to reflect on our own experiences?

When answering these, think about using full paragraphs, and quoting passages from the argument that comes to mind that help support your explanations.

The Reader Response will be graded by a simple rubric you can see here, and must be done by the time we review the piece in class. Consider how you might use the Reader Responses to advance your work on the papers we’re working on.

This is in a Discussion forum, and other can respond to what you write, but having the exchange of ideas in here is not required. However, I strongly encourage you to return to this Discussion later in the week after you’ve posted your own response, and to read what others are say. Also, look at what I’m writing to others in response; a response to one of you is a response to all of you, and my posts often start with highlighted text, if that makes it easier to find.
