Part A Setting-Annie Hawks
This storyboard does not have a description.
"It was late afternoon, already something close to dark on the north side of the mountain, where the rhododendrons huddled in the cleft of every hollow" pg 8 "But for now their buds still slept" pg 8 Key words: Late afternoon, huddled, slept These words create a sense of peacefulness. Kingsolver describes this scene as if she were painting it. The words she uses extenuates the beauty of the mountain. I think the reason why it is described so beautifully is because Deanna loves the mountains. If the character didn't like where she lived, then the setting might not be described as much, or it might be talked about in a negative tone.
Time: May, end of springtime Place: Zebulon Mountains Page: 8-9
"Lusa stood on the front porch, watching rain pour over the eave in long silver strings. The gabled roof of her farmhouse-her farmhouse- was made of grooved tin..." pg 101 "She'd set out the buckets to collect a drink for the potted ferns on the porch, which were out of the rain's reach and turning brown, even in this soggy weather, as brittle and desolate as her internal grief"pg 101 Key words: Rain, brittle, desolate The rain makes the mood sad and gloomy. I think Kingsolver purposely crafted this depressing setting to give us an idea of how Lusa feels. When she descibes a potted fern that is dying, it's almost like she is talking about Lusa. Something that is so beautiful and alive starts to die because they are both unable to have something that is out of reach. The word brittle ,meaning fragile, creates a cautious mood. Desolate, meaning depressed, creates a depressing scene. It describes how Lusa feels at the moment
Time: Modern day, summer Place: Egg Fork, Lusa's farm page: 101
Time: Modern day, July Place: Nannie Rawley's apple orchard Page:270, 271, 343
"Garnett did admire a well-set orchard, he'd give her that much. He liked the cool, shaded ground spread under the trees like a broad picnic blanket, an d he liked how the trunks lined up for your eye as you walked through: first in straight rows and then in diagonals..." pg 270 "He'd gone as far as the line fence that separated their fields." pg 271 "She climbed back up into the boughs of her apple, a June Transparent- he could tell from the yellow fruits lying on the ground. She was picking June apples in the middle of July." pg 271 Key words: cool, shaded, picnic The mood evoked from the text is calm. The setting is in the summer, when most people are relaxing. The shade from the tree creates a laid back scene. During a hot summer's day, it feels good to escape into the shade. The picnic brings back childhood memories for the reader. The apple orchard is important to the book because it is where most of the story takes place. The author uses the fence to separate Garnett and Nannie. " I haven't trespassed on your land since the day your father bought it from mine" pg 339 The fence represents their hatred and their different views on the world. However, after Nannie Rawley help Garnett, they become closer, and he is finally willing to go onto Nannie Rawley's land. "Would you like to walk up on the hill with me and see those chestnuts?" pg 343 "Garnett could picture the two old chestnuts up there...just a stone's throw from his property" pg 343
