David Parham World Lit Dr. Gentry September 29, 2005 Alessandro Baricco’s Silk I really enjoyed reading Alessandro Baricco’s Silk. At first I did not think it was too good of a story, but after discussing it further in class I realized there was more to it then what I thought. My favorite part of the story is then end when Herve finds out that his wife tricked him. The whole time he was thinking that this beautiful Japanese woman was writing him, but in fact it was his wife. Towards the end of the story, many people would feel sorry for Herve, but I do not. Herve ends up being lonely in the end, but I think it’s his own fault, and he got what he deserved.
