ENG 120 CC Eight Bites Rhetorical Context & Summary Annotation Worksheet


This week we are going to be reading some fictional short stories for our Monsters Unit. The story “Eight Bites” addresses one such danger, the toxic messages women internalize about body image (Links to an external site.), which contribute to, if not engender, the various pathological conditions described in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (Links to an external site.) of Psychological Disorders, Fifth Edition. While it is difficult to say whether the protagonist of “Eight Bites” has Binge Eating Disorder (Links to an external site.) or Body Dysmorphic Disorder (Links to an external site.), her relationship to food and eating is unhealthy to such a degree that she undergoes bariatric surgery, with no indication whatsoever that this procedure is medically necessary.

Step 1:

Carefully read through “Eight Bites” by Carmen Maria Machado. Read it slowly! Read it twice! Use the questions above to help you annotate. This reading I am providing as a link because there are videos embedded in the article.
