Read “A Curious Fragment” by Jack London and think about the following. Highlight, underline, jot down margin notes…
- What changes about our reader expectations when a story is set in the future?
- Why would a writer set a story in the future, in a potentially unrecognizable place?
- How does the story comment on:

- the role of language and literature?
- Is this story similar to or different from other dystopias you have seen?
