·Write an analysis of a key character in the literary work “We Came All the Way from Cuba so You Could Dress Like This?” .
·Focus on two or three key actions of that character. Discuss the character’s motivations and decisions in terms you can support with clear evidence from a critical reading of the text.
·Consider whether this character’s actions fit together or contradict each other. You may also want to consider whether or not any other characters in the story are aware of this conflict, and if so, how they influence the character you are writing about.
·Create a working thesis.
·What are three key ideas that you will discuss in support of your thesis?
1.To what conflicts does the title allude (social? Political? Cultural? others?)?
2.The first-person narrator switches tenses (from present to future). How does this create tension in the story?
3.How is the narrator’s internal conflict (“man v. self”) merely an internalization of political, familial, and social conflict?
