  1. Read the chapter called “La Gioconda’s Smile” (66-73) [attached below].
    • Explore
      language, our next literary term, through Guevara’s diction (word
      choices) and the denotation and connotations of those words. Noticing
      the language of a text helps you be a more critical reader. The author
      chose particular words that are unique and distinctive in order to
      convey a tone and meaning.
  2. Find the following eight words in this chapter: prosaic, miasmas, indolent, acrid, acrimony, proletariat, macabre and wrested.
    • Notice the context of these words in the sentences from the chapter.
    • If you do not already know the meaning of these words, can you guess at the meaning from the context?
  3. Look up
    the denotations (dictionary definitions) of these words on the Internet
    and make a vocabulary list of words and definitions. Determine how the
    definitions help you understand the sentence.
  4. Locate these words in the chapter:
    • “knights,”
    • “hitchhikers,”
    • “assaulted,”
    • “parasites,”
    • “clambered,”
    • “riff raff”
  5. List
    5 connotations (emotional associations) of each of these words and
    determine how those connotations change the tone of this chapter or the
    reaction you have to each of their sentences.
  6. Post your
    list of denotations and your list of connotations. Also, post two
    paragraphs, one on denotation and one on connotation, answering the
    follwing questions:

    • How do the dictionary definitions help you understand the meaning of the story.
    • How
      do the connotations of the other words add to the overall emotional
      tone of this chapter, and to your understanding of Che’s character?
