In chapter 7 we learn that Gogol loses his father.
1. Reflect on the following questions in your blog using quotes to support your answers.
As Gogol mourns his father’s death, what great qualities of his father’s character come to mind? What connection was there between him and his father that he now appreciates more than ever before? How might his father’s memory give him a firmer grasp on his own identity in the years to come?
2. When you are done read two of your classmates blogs and comment on their reflections. Challenge someone's response, agree and comment on the similarities of your blog posts or ask a question that was provoked by their reflection.
3. Be prepared to discuss your ideas regarding the blog questions and chapter 7.
