Read/Finish FW#14 – Due: tomorrow!

FW#14 – Base this paragraph on yesterday’s group discussion about Andrew, Narcisso, and Tenorio. Return to Ultima’s earlier assertion that, “The ways of men are strange, and hard to learn” (27). Write a paragraph that looks back at Tony’s questions/observations about the men who killed Lupito in the beginning of the novel through to the end of Chapter Catorce (14). What has Antonio learned since the beginning of the novel about the ways of men? Are any of the ways of men becoming less confusing to him? Are any becoming more confusing? Support your answer with specific text evidence.

IMPORTANT: Deadline for all late work: TOMORROW! Please do NOT submit late assignments (except research paper) to Google Classroom. You need to print a copy and hand it in to me.
