For this week, you read Agnon’s “Agunot” and Baron’s “Sunbeams”. Notice that both stories deal with alienation. “Sunbeams” heroine moves to an unfamiliar community completely alone, in which she is treated with no human dignity. In “Agunot”, The state of “aguna” (anchordness), as I discuss it in the recording, is related to alienation from something that used to be close and familiar. For each story, explain whether the protagonist is able to overcome this alienation. In your answer, refer to events from each story.
