CATHEDRAL ANALYSIS 2 “Cathedral” Analysis In his short story “cathedral”, Raymond Carver portrays the elements of fiction such as characters and the first person point of view to help the readers understand the true meaning behind the story. Carver teaches the readers that they should not be judgmental and that what may look like a weakness to them could be the strength of the person. A person should not be blinded by the limitations of the physical world. Carver uses a very important element of fiction which is the character development. Carver builds on the narrator character by showing the readers that he’s judgmental toward Robert for being a blind person. He seems to be close-minded at the beginning of the story. In particular, when he says "I wasn't enthusiastic about the visit. He was no one I knew. And his being blind bothered me" (p. 77). He goes on by saying that he doesn’t have knowledge about blind people neither about blindness when he comments “my idea of blindness came from movies (p.77).
