  • Leaving The Iron Lung, By Anne Laurel Cartier

    A major part of life is pursuing dreams. Life would almost be pointless if people did not have ambitions. We wouldn’t have a reason to get out of bed if they did not have a dream that they want to achieve. Anne Laurel Cartier, the author of the short story “Leaving the iron lung,” specifically looks at how having a dream can affect one’s life. Carter uses conflicting characters, character transformation, and the setting to illustrate that to be content with life one needs to follow their dream, even if they need to commit and sacrifice to achieve it. First, Carter uses the contrasting characters Agathe and Marie to show that having a dream is an important part of someone’s life. First, Agathe decision to give up her ambition of being a professor to take care of Pauline when she falls ill with polio (89) leaves her bitter and empty enough for Pauline to reference her as “the ice queen” (85). Carter is trying to show that if one does not have a dream they will be unsatisfied. Second, Marie tells Pauline that she dreams of having her art displayed in the Louvre (86). By telling Pauline that she has a dream that seems impossible she is influencing her to think she is capable of a dream even if it seems absurd. The author uses what Marie tells Pauline to teach the reader that they should have a dream even if it feels impossible. Finally, in the story Agathe wears a grey skirt (84) while Marie wears a red barrette (86). The author made Agathe’s skirt is grey to obscure her and…
