    unaware of how to use it. I personally do not favor the fact that most schools do not combine this class with the school’s curriculum, which deprives students, myself included, from this vital way of thinking. The notable Chinese philosopher, Confucius, once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Children who enjoy being creative and who have the qualities of growing up to be innovators or applying this trait to their everyday jobs will, as Confucius…

    The protagonist in Carver’s “Cathedral” also serves as the narrator. The man although nameless reveals to us (the readers) who he is throughout the story.

Also even though he is not described as being blind himself, he does seem to be blinded to his wife’s thoughts and feelings, as well as to things he does not understand. The main character lacks intimacy, and seems to be…

    Looking But Not Seeing. Appreciably, blindness is a dominant theme woven through the garment of the “Cathedral” story by Raymond Carver. One is taken aback by the utter rawness and cold attitude exhibited by the narrator about the blind man. The narrator loudly wonders on who could dare attend a little wedding between Robert, the blind man and his sweetheart Beulah and further states that he does not have any blind person as a friend. As the story develops, one thing becomes certain that the…

    Acceptance is key, and, under no circumstances can you know what a person may hold for your future.

When he came to visit the couple, the narrator, known as "Bub," was shocked to find that the stereotypes of blind men, which he learned by watching movies, were all false. Carver made Bub to be blind, not physically, but to what communication can…
