A fair amount of the back story is set up in “Cathedral”, we are told at length about the wife’s history with both Robert, her blind friend, and with her ex-husband. We are provided explicit detail on the effects of her previous marriage, and her subsequent suicide attempt, as well as the results of caring for Robert, a man who she still keeps in touch with years later and whose next caretaker married him. Our narrator’s wife is fairly well portrayed as a sensitive type that reads poetry and is fairly open and honest yet flashes glimpses of a darker side in her short outbursts of anger and melancholy. We are even expressly given access to our narrator’s short comings: with all of his preconceptions of the blind man who is coming over, the narrator has no basis on which to expect Robert to act having never known a blind person and having only the movies to go on. The narrator is quite literally blind in the sense of how he perceives Robert.
