The boy from “Araby” was alone, with this feeling that he could not make sense of because his faith tells him that they are a sin. Something similar happened with Nickles as Sebacher says, “That night, unable to sleep, Nickles drove his Nova out to her house. The house was completely dark and vacant-looking, but he knew she was there. He felt as though all the light had left the world, which was not an entirely unpleasant feeling, somehow. The loneliness of interstellar space, he said to himself-a line from Ulysses Robert [his best friend] often recited” (Sebacher 1).

Ann was becoming uninterested in John, in that he is becoming “…boring…” similar to the feeling Ann has regarding the farm, “…the frozen silence of the bitter fields…” (p.290) “It was easier to stay at home, to stand at the window staring across the bitter fields, to count the days and look forward to another spring.” (p.293) The character foils in “A Painted Door” continue in the development of the theme, in that John and Steven contrast each other, the lack of communication that John and Ann share is made up from the immense interest Steven has with pleasing Ann’s every
We are introduced from the beginning of Raymond Carver’s Cathedral to a man that seems to be perturbed and agitated. The husband “ wasn’t enthusiastic about [Robert] visit, he was no one [he] knew. And his being blind bothered [him].” (20) He is uninterested in the relationship that Robert has with his wife. (21) The only reason he knows any thing about Robert is because she told him, he didn’t ask and didn’t care to know. We see how selfish and self centered the narrator is as he has thoughts of, “this blind man” “coming to sleep in [his] house” and telling his wife “maybe [he] could take him bowling” (22).
Milkman is a vile man that is simply confused. What milkman doesn’t realize is that his own experiences are gradually leading him to his own personal freedom of flight. “If he did manage to slip by his sisters and avoid their casual malice, he knelt in his room at the window sill and wondered again and again why he had to stay level on the ground.” Pg10.

Finally after what seems like forever the colt begins to slow and you get him under manageable control. It would take a few more rides like this before the horse would allow himself to be backed without blowing up. Training a horse no matter what the purpose or method is a huge undertaking as well as responsibility. If the job is done correctly, the horse can lead a highly productive life. If trainers are rough with the horse and force it to do things (cowboy method), rather than encourage them to ﬁgure it out and accept it on their own (natural horsemanship method), they will probably do what is asked of them, but they will be nervous and have little to no trust in their trainer.
