Haruki Murakami’s “The Elephant Vanishes,”
First, what did you think of the story, did you like it? Did it confuse you? Explain.
What is the narrator like? How does he change over the course of the story?
Is the story (or the characters) symbolic somehow? The story itself makes it clear that the main event is impossible, so how do we resolve the mystery?
Titles can be super important. In this story, why do you think the title is in present tense?
