Write a response paper on the reading "The Vendetta" by Maupassant.

General instructions:
Format: One page (no more, no less ), typed Times New Roman, 12pt font, 1 inch margins Double spaced no extra line spacing before or after paragraphs Avoid: Rhetorical questions, “etc.,” contractions, “valid point,” “that being said,” “in my opinion,” informal fallacies Tips: Get to the point – these are very short assignments, spending a paragraph giving an introduction is a waste of space. Focus your thought – target the key concept or idea that you are trying to discuss in the response. Ignore extraneous information. Be clear. Be concise. Stay on target.

You must then show how this fact is important to our assessment of right and wrong in this situation.
