spqcr asked 4 years ago

Do you have a quote/thesis/things I could analyze based on this question? I would need at least 6 quotes and a three version thesis statement.

The novel gives us many fascinating examples of how people re-create even the barest of spaces to mark their individuality; outsiders may think of these folks as “homeless” but the book shows us many different kinds of living spaces, each matched to its “owner’s” personality. Discuss examples of this. Note also how this community works out a complicated balance between private spaces and shared public or semi-public areas-discuss this too. A really interesting example of the latter (if I remember correctly) is how in the open space inside the “Palace Flophouse” was originally divided by chalk outlines or borders into separate, private “property” for each inhabitant. But soon these spaces become highly decorated and “furnished” in ways that perfectly express the foibles and virtues of “Mack and the boys,” and other areas in the flophouse and right outside it evolve into shared public spaces that are very important for sustaining the “boys’ ” community.

Unfortunately, we are not familiar with this book, and do not know exact parts in the book to illustrate a thesis.
