Litspiration Challenge: Setting
Recently we have been analyzing the components of setting in the "House of the Scorpion" by Nancy Farmer. To demonstrate this knowledge we have decided to make a travel Brochure to the fictional land inside the book.
In this brochure, we have taken the perspective of a person who would write such reviews in this fictional world. When making reference to Matt Alacran he is described to be an "it". This indicates a difference in social status and a discriminatory bias against clones like Matt. The first section of the Brochure is an introduction to Opium, the fictional country. The second section describes the setting, and the third section describes how the narrative is driven forward by the different scene-specific settings.
