This is an example of how brutal people can be. Why would you kill this old man who you claimed to be an angel? The couple decided not to do so but instead they held the angel captive in a unsanitary chicken coop while it rained all night and while the chickens plucked at the angels already damaged wings. This is another demonstration of cruelty. The angel wasn’t worthy enough to stay in the house.
The small family’s courtyard becomes a circus show, to the point even a woman who was turned into a spider comes into town with a traveling show and tells her sad tale. After some time, the people begin to lose interest in the angelic being, and finally leave. The only people left are the family that had been taking care of the beast from before, and more out of pity than anything else. One day he flies away like a burden blown away with the wind. Marquez wants the reader to see that every miracle is a miracle nevertheless.
Then, they call a woman neighbor who knows everything to come by and help them figure out who he is. After taking a look at the old man, she insists that he is “an angel” and advises them to club the old man to death, but they lack the heart to do it. Her reaction to the man with wings is indeed influenced by what she has been taught. This is a typical example of a religious person. Meanwhile, Pelayo does not know what to do with the man so he locks him in the chicken coop over

Afterwards, the River Monster announces that it is because of Houyi, so all the people blame and trouble him unless Houyi can shoot the other nine suns. Houyi is very puzzled and restless, so he even cannot shoot one sun. One day, a goddess cannot tolerate it and tries to help Houyi.

ENG 104002Kailey Robinson-McKay Introduction to Literature (Fiction)Analysis #1 Group #11 “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” Gabriel Marquez's short story “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” is about an old man with wings, whom is debated throughout the story to be an angel. The turning point of the story is when the spider woman comes to town and takes the focus of the townspeople away from the angel. People in the story cannot distinguish between the natural and supernatural and therefor, unlike the spider woman, treat the old man as an oddity, but not a supernatural oddity. The townspeople treated the old man more as a freak of nature than something beyond nature. The old man appears to be nothing more than a frail human with wings, and so his status as an angel is endlessly debated.
We have all been victims of “precious little angels” in the check-out lanes of supermarkets. My favorite “little angels” are the ones screaming at their parents and throwing themselves on the ground, because the wanted, “The Fruity Pebbles” not the Wal-Mart brand. The whole time the parent of the child is red faced and acting embarrassed. I was told as a child if screamed or whined, “I want, I want”; that would mean I would never get that item. My mother and father meant every word of that, and I knew it.
The neighbor claimed, “He’s an Angel. He must have been coming for the child, but the poor fellow is so old that the rain knocked him down.” After this was stated from this neighbor, everyone assumed he in fact was an angel or perhaps a Norwegian Sailor due to his accent and because of course angels have wings. “Against the judgment of the wise neighbor woman, for whom angels in those times were the fugitive survivors of a celestial conspiracy, they did not have a heart to club him to death.” He was not killed, instead was kept on a raft with fresh water. The news was spread so quick to the neighborhood that by the next morning he was being tossed food. Since he received the title of an angel people did expect a few things from him, but he did not come through with them.
Un-fortune things don’t work out the way she wants it to. Susie watches her family and friends fall apart in her heaven.

One can say, with so many personalities in the world you have to expect that what one person sees as half full, and another sees it as half empty. One thing I believe most of all is that television is important enough that we can’t live without it, and a lot of us depend on it. Dana Stevens is "Thinking Outside the Idiot Box" is a direct response to Steven Johnson's essay "watching TV makes you Smarter". (p.1) Dana Stevens (2005) said that “She could make no sense of Johnson’s piece” (p.1). She did not really agree with anything besides that watching TV is okay.
