Short story work: “A Prayer from the Living” by Ben Okri

February 6, 2012

We are going to to a little bit of work with a short story found on page 287 in Stunt. It is Ben Okri’s “A Prayer from the Living” from 1993. I will give you some tasks to work with in class, but we will also make use of the word cloud underneath. A word cloud is a graphic presentation of the text, where the words that recur often are shown as bigger, and vice versa. It can give you an idea of what the text is about.
