Please respond in MLA format:


Chapter IV focuses on the idea of stories as medicine, and King notes that a "story told one way could cure, [and] the same story told another way could injure“ (92). King is particularly interested in "saving stories,” and argues that to neglect to tell a story is as "powerful an agent as war and fire" (98). According to King, how might a person be saved by a story? Are you surprised by King's three personal "saving stories"? Why do you think these stories "keep him alive" (98). What stories "save" you? What stories injure you?

Use specific details and examples from the text to support your claims.
