Tell all the Truth, but tell it Slant...

Sorry I cut us short today. Here are the questions I was hoping we would get to to bring our thinking together. Feel free to also share your thinking about ideas, characters, and settings in the text (Roxy, Chambers, Sons of Liberty, the Driscoll family name, etc.) that we didn't quite get to today.

What effect does this illusion versus reality motif have on the reader?
To what extent would Twain agree with Dickinson’s assessment of reality?
With Hitchcock’s?
To what extent do you support Twain, Hitchcock and/ or Dickinson’s thinking?

Happy pondering and posting.
