Questions about “The Horse Dealer’s Daughter”:
- In what way does the opening scene at the Pervin house help us to understand Mabel and the events that follow?
- What is Mabel’s conflict?
- What is the symbolic significance of the episode in the pond?
- In what way is Mabel a changed person at the end of the story (and perhaps Jack as well)? Please consider that there is more to it than falling in love.
Here is a link to this week’s story online. Please note that the title of the story is not “England My England.” The title of the short story is “The Horse Dealer’s Daughter.”
