Lesson 5- quiz 1. The first story in which we can find the theme "You are your brother's keeper" is “The Red Convertible”. At the center of the story is the relationship between Lyman and Henry. Lyman’s motivation for telling the story is to embrace and preserve his brother’s memory.

The story implies that we are our brother’s keepers, and that a brotherly support amounts to more than control. It requires listening and true understanding. Brothers don't judge- they help when emotional or physical help is needed. The older brother reaches out to Sonny after the death of his youngest daughter- because this tragedy makes Sonny's troubles seem real. He tried to get Sonny back in school and after he was married he forces Sonny to live with his wife's family because he believes it is what is best. 2.

Sonny uses blues and jazz as an outlet for his feelings, an outlet which his brother at first does not understand. Once Sonny’s brother visits the jazz club and hears Sonny play, he begins to comprehend the power and importance of music in Sonny’s life. 3.
