These three questions need to be answered: 1. Putting aside the deplorable working and living conditions of the immigrant workers, describe the conditions in the stockyards of Chicago: what kind of an environment is this? 2. How does Sinclair portray the government health inspectors? 3. Which scene in the novel is the most horrifying? This does not need to be exactly 2 pages. It can be a page and a half. And it also doesn’t have to sound so formal and smart!
