Ahhh, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, brings back oh so many memories. I read it back in 3rd grade, right after I had finished MacBeth and Hamlet (I read them both at the same time), so its been a while. Motifs you are looking for? Well, I mean, they are pretty much staring right at you throughout the whole book. I remember the first thing I thought of when I finished this quick read was, "Wow, there were just so many motifs in that book!" Then, I was bored a couple days later and sat down for about 10 minutes and made an annotative quote log for the whole book. Remember, I was in 3rd grade doing this, and by the looks of your profile, you are in 10th grade! You don't need any help from me, just go take 20 minutes, re-read the book, and you'll have those motifs in a jiffy!
