In Section 39, we heard Addie say that Jewel will be her salvation, that is, he will save her "from the  water and from the fire." Prior to her narration, we had the water episode in which Addie's coffin and  body were rescued by Jewel. During these sections we have the fire episode, in which Jewel will risk  his own life in order to save Addie from the burning barn. Section 48, narrated by Darl, shows how Darl continues to taunt Jewel by questioning who he is.  Jewel obviously knows that Darl is referring to the fact that he does not have a father and that he  was the result of Addie's adulterous affair with Preacher Whitfield. These taunts partially justify  Jewel's later attack upon Darl, and particularly the violence with which Jewel later attacks Darl. Of  equal importance is why does Darl continue with these taunts? Is he in reality being only malicious

    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.
