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.

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).

Johnny also has frequent thoughts of suicide which could be due to depression, feeling unloved by his parents, socially undesirable, seeing himself as “out of place” even amongst friends, and that he internalizes that actions of others.
This story was half fiction, but in a way half true. In 1887 Gilman went to see a specialist in hopes of curing her reoccurring nervous breakdowns. The physician prescribed her to a “rest-cure”. This meant for her to lie in bed all day and engage in no more than two hours of intellectual activity. In her short story, The Yellow Wallpaper, Gilman describes the physician office as a hotel which she is staying in while her husband and herself are on vacation and while her husband, a physician, is at work her sister-in-law tends to Gilman’s needs and checks in on her every day.
