Cathedral

Everyday we encounter people on the street, school or work but many times we close ourselves off and don’t create the chance to get to know who they are. We find most of the time, the most interaction with a stranger is just a few seconds and we already make assumptions about them despite only having such a short encounter with that stranger. How do we know if that person could potentially be one of the best people you could ever meet? In “Cathedral” Raymond Carver shows how the narrator and Robert, who is blind and a complete stranger, eventually can share moments and experiences despite their distinct differences.

We as humans are very likely to draw a lot from our first impressions of someone, the whole opinion of someone can just be created with just a few looks or even words. The narrator’s wife has a blind friend that is going to stay overnight at their house. “A blind man in my house was not something I looked forward to” (Carver 1) the narrator says as he continues to stray away from the blind man that he never met.The wife and the blind man have known each other for years as she used to work for him. Last time they saw each other, the wife created a poem about how the blind man touched her face. When the wife tried to show the poem to the narrator he “didn’t think much” of it or he just doesn’t “understand poetry”. It is clear the wife and man have a very long history between the two and the narrator isn’t exactly thrilled about their experience. He doesn’t have any excitement towards the blind man or any sympathy as the blind man’s wife died recently.

The blind man arrives at the house and the narrator continues to talk down on the fact that he is staying over for the night. Stating rude comments such as “Maybe I could take him bowling” (Carver 3) and disrespectful questions “Was his wife a Negro?” After hearing the name of the wife of the blind man only worsened his feelings towards the man. Eventually the negativity towards the blind man flips and the narrator slowly starts to relate to the blind man. The two men share a drink, “a glass of Scotch” (Carver 6). This is significant as this is the first time the narrator and blind man share something in common.

Marking and Maltreatment in the Yellow Wallpaper

In the case of wallpaper, state-related disintegration is associated with damage to the female brain.  The story is written at the same time as the main part of the culture for a woman to create a home for her family.  Her values ​ ​​were adjusted in a way that was contrary to the woman’s way of life.  For the sake of material superiority, in that fill to many anxieties.  This stress development is actually described in the manual. Depression associated with women’s brains can be attributed to related disruption. As read on the story, the primary conflict is man and him/herself. The actress lives in a society where she is not seen as an individual (and also, at home). As a sick woman, she is controlled by her brother and her husband as they try to do what they believe is best for her.

They do this without paying any attention to what she wants. Her thoughts do not represent reality and her opinions force her to accept that only men who care for her, no matter what they want or feel. The fight with herself steps grew and caused her to fight with the community. Because society is telling her that she is crazy, that she can’t believe her own ideas and that she should give full control to men in her life, she struggles to keep her mind and decide the truth for herself. She becomes more and more aware of her potential, and as she tries to suppress this new perception, she goes down.

End Note:

Hi Abeje,

I think overall you are doing well with getting your ideas out. You seem to know what you will be talking about. I think what you have to work on is organization and to properly use MLA format. But so far so good.

Good luck,

Lourdes
