Name of Text: The Whole World Knows Plot Synopsis (Be brief yet descriptive) Randall MacLain has somewhat of an affair with Maideen Sumrall. He is separated from his wife Jinny Love because she cheated on him. He lives at Francine’s house for the time being. He takes Maideen on a trip to Vicksburg. Notable Features (give 3 Devices and tell Effect) Apostrophe- Randall continually addresses his father as if he is there, though he is not. This gives the sense that Randall is missing a father figure. He doesn’t necessarily miss King MacLain as a person, but he has lacked a father his whole life. However, he may not be addressing his father at all, but rather a religious priest. This indicates that he has committed a sin and wants to be forgiven for it. First person perspective- The fact that the story is from Randall’s point of view tells the readers exactly what he is thinking. Readers are able to emphasize with him, and it makes him the central figure in the story. Doppelgangers- Randall notes that Maideen looks like a younger version of Jinny, which indicates that it is not a coincidence that he is involved with her. He seems to treat Maideen badly because he want to punish Jinny for her crime against him. Quotations (List a quotation to accompany each feature above) “Father, I wish I could talk to you, wherever you are right now” (157) “I told her my eyes had gone bad” (159) “But she looked like Jinny. She was a child’s copy of Jinny,” (163).
