I chose to create a collage dedicated to the short story “Penny in The Dust” because personally, I believe that it was the most impactful short story out of the four short stories that we were expected to read and analyze. “Penny in The Dust” is a brief story about a boy and his father’s struggle to show affection in a traditional manner, which can either be shown physically, or vocally. Throughout the story, the boy, now an adult felt a sense of reminisce while walking through a field which reminded him of the penny that his father gave him. I chose to do this project in a collage format because, I reckoned that it would have been the best method to show my understanding of the story.
