Having an imagination is necessary to get deeper in the story, and a good memory is also required to tie the pieces of the story together. And of course an artistic sense to appreciate the beauty of the author’s writing. Nabokov states “Since the master artist used his imagination in creating his book, it is natural and fair that the consumer of a book should use his imagination too.” The reader needs to also understand and appreciate the language used by the author. He needs to pay attention and notice the details in a novel and not just the general storyline. He needs to read with an open mind regardless of other people’s judgment of the novel.
In “The Loss of the Creature” by Walker Percy, the common reader might not be able to understand the depths of the concepts shown to him. To explore this, we can start with the title. These are the first words people read. When the common reader glances at the title, he may see just the literal meaning – it is an essay about a creature, some sort of animal, maybe.

The reading shows that D’Angelo decided to ignore the man and not provide assistance in his time of need, he chose to leave and continue on his way once his elevator stopped at his floor. This is where the separation stage takes effect. D’ Angelo could have helped the man and comforted him yet he didn’t, fear of the crying mans reaction prevented D’Angelo from assisting him in his time of need. Most times in archetypal stories during this stage of separation there would be a guide or some type of being to assist the hero.

Pugh should have relied on the text of Babbitt more to illustrate allusions that are not common or have lost their original meaning through time.

He made his mind up that it was a bad book. He realized to that quality of composing the books of Mr. Leinster. First of all, he noticed that Mr. Leinster used the word “Zestful” too frequency.
