1) For Ender's Game we made a work cited and talked about the original publication date. If Ender's Game was originally written in 1977 (and even earlier as a short story) what was the world like in the 1960-70's that would have influenced the author?
2) As we read Ender's Game we also noticed that titles were incredibly important. As we turn to "The Scarlet Ibis" what symbols are present for us in the title that make a first impression? Are those ideas contradicted or elaborated on in the first paragraph?
