Feb 23 Read hand outs Heavy Crane component on exam 2. No match ups with naturalism, modernism, etc… Realism: recognizable people and settings, laughter… “his own life had been a great one…”---he describes Alice as a “used” woman. At this time a woman who marries should be a virgin, untouched, and consummates sexual relationship with one man and one man for life. This turns the virginal status into commodity. Waythorn has to overlook all these things, he knows his wife’s history, she’s moved up with each husband’s status…in the paragraph that begins with Alice Hascket (her first married name)---a sentence in the paragraph says “divorce is a diploma of virtue.”- Ironic perspective from the author. Waythorn choses to ignore the rumors that she has married up the social ladder but he clearly knows it. In the wallstreet phase he had discounted…there’s lots of legal, economic metaphors in the story. It’s a story about business. “nothing was known about Hasket in NY” No one knew of her first husband, he was a small town man. She comes off as a shallow person. She obeys his legal injunction (legal metaphor)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
