Even Francisco's characteristic mockery, his use of irony and biting derision, is always benevolent  and positive. He always directs his mockery at the irrational, never at the good and never at  strangers. He laughs openly at people like James Taggart, because he knows that man can and  should be much better. While James Taggart uses derision as a weapon of destruction, Francisco  uses it as a means of destroying the destroyers, thereby clearing the road for the creative. His  trademark mockery always supports his values. A scene from his childhood proves this point. When  a professor of literature saw Francisco on top of a pile in a junk yard, happily "dismantling the  carcass of an automobile," he said, "'A young man of your position ought to spend his time in  libraries, absorbing the culture of the world.'" Francisco replied, "'What do you think I'm doing?'" He

    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.
