Hello dear hard-workers!

I hope everyone has finished their holidays by now... and I that many of you will work on this last part of the text...

The passage isn't difficult to understand, but you may have to think a little to find the right tenses, once again. As for the optional expression, you'll have a choice between several topics around the central issue. You'll simply have to choose what focus you prefer...

Cet exercice est un et la correction sera en ligne le mercredi 29 septembre 2021. Go for it!

I) Translate into French:

… One of the men – it might have been Stuart – waded in and got her. He took her by the fingers and pulled her into shore. He got some nylon cord and tied it to her wrist and then looped the rest around a tree.
The next morning, they cooked breakfast, drank coffee, and drank whiskey, and then split up to fish. That night they cooked fish, cooked potatoes, drank coffee, drank whiskey, then took their cooking things and eating things back down to the river and washed them where the girl was.
They played some cards later on. Maybe they played until they couldn’t see them anymore. Vern Williams went to sleep. But the others told stories. Gordon Johnson said the trout they’d caught were hard because of the terrible coldness of the water.
The next morning they got up late, drank whiskey, fished a little, took down their tents, rolled their tents, rolled their sleeping bags, gathered their stuff, and hiked out. They drove until they got to a telephone. It was Stuart who made the call while the others stood around in the sun and listened. He gave the sheriff their names. They had nothing to hide. They weren’t ashamed. They said they’d wait until someone could come for better directions and take down their statements.

Raymond CARVER, Short Cuts.

II) EXPRESSION : optional. In 130 words, express yourself about one of the following questions :
1) Choose an adjective qualifying the men’s reaction and justify this adjective thanks to the text (do NOT quote it!)
OR 2) «They weren’t ashamed»; were they "right" not to be? Why or why not? (or should they have been? why?)
OR 3) "Guilty, or not guilty?" of what?

THE FORCE is with you... Thanks for working with this group!
