Unit 6 (8 periods)
Section A: The Widow (4 periods) Period 1-2 I. Warm-up Questions / Activities 1. Why is the woman in this story in pain? Because quotations from Elizabeth Jolley’s novel Cabin Fever arouse the woman’s memory of her husband who has passed away. They bring her back in time to her previous wedding ceremony at which she and her husband received not only good wishes from their colleagues and old schoolmates, but also the heart-felt congratulations from an unexpected “aunt” whose identity later created repeated discussions between them. Now, she is alone, she misses her late husband. Whenever she reads the words taken from Cabin Fever, her desire to see her husband is so strong that when she writes the word ‘husband’ on a piece of paper her eyes fill with tears, as if she were sitting by the fire in winter with him. 2. Where did the wife think the strange wedding guest had come from? Why did her husband not agree with her? The woman thought that the peculiar wedding guest had come from heaven as a messenger. But, her husband did not agree with her on the ground that she did not have the right shape for a heavenly messenger. He asserted that the woman was there to attend their marriage ceremony by accident. 3. What gift did the strange wedding guest give to the new husband and wife? Different from other wedding guests, the peculiar woman gave a unique word gift to the newly-weds, predicting that they were going to lead a good and happy life; they would work industriously and love each other. The words were so magic that their marriage life just followed the same course as the unknown “aunt” foretold, rich with warmth and mutual understanding as well as more devotion to each other. All of this inspired the couple to bring up the prophecy around each of their anniversaries. II. Comprehension of the Text Deal with the comprehension exercise of the text on Page 130. III. Text Structure (Combined with Text Structure Analysis and Structured Writing) Divide the text into 4 parts and find the topic sentence in every part. Topic: A sad, lonely woman who experiences the pain of loss as she remembers how her wedding day sent its spell over the rest of her marriage. Part I (Para. 1-2): The widow missed her husband so much. Part II (Para. 3-11) The couple’s wedding Part III (Para. 12-14): Their marriage life Part IV (Para. 15-19): The most valuable thing to the widow is a message written on a worn envelop.

IV. Background Information 1. Cabin Fever continues the events of her previous book, My Father's Moon, but from a different voice and 40 years later. The story is presented in bits and pieces as a successful woman psychologist recalls her war experiences and post war hard times. The book is not a complete story but only certain memories that help the woman make sense of all the pain, trouble, loss and sad times in her life. The book describes the culture of the late 1940s.
