Hunters in the Snow


Today in Research Writing class, we discussed a powerful short story by Tobias Wolff called “Hunters in the Snow”, so for this week’s Thoughtful Friday post I’m going to let Tobias do the work for me.  I encourage you to take a few minutes to read the story, but read critically, there’s a lot packed into this little narrative about three hunters and their struggles with denial.  Also, just as a warning, it includes some minor cursing.  It’s hard to write a post about “Hunters in the Snow” without getting into the intricate details of the story, so all I can say is, please take the time to read it, and if you do, leave me a comment below and let me know what you think  of the story.  If you want to discuss some of the meanings behind the story, let me know and I’d be more than happy to work something out.  Goodnight, and happy reading.
