Unformatted text preview: Maturity = empathy necessary for writers. Is a good thing. GW is selfish comes relatio with h mothe his mo died h initiall though how h miss h with H was “a annoy his mo died o day” ( doesn' interna mothe – whil with h corpse thinks 11 Jung kissing Then h shame and re believ mothe Me Winesburg itself does not represent hope, however, the people of Winesburg, Ohio are desperately in search for it. The different characters go to GW as their only capability of obtaining hope for themselves (almost as if they are living through him). My opinion is a mix of both F and S in the sense that I think GW has some knowledge that the rest of the characters of W,O do not which makes him appear to be “mature”. However, I also think that his inability to act on his emotions fails to show his full development . He leaves W, O with this great passion for dreaming and fulfilling it in the city without much acknowledg ement of the difficulties, etc. I see “The Awakening” as the climax of the development of GW as a character in this novel. The relationship between GW and Belle Carpenter is key because it shows an authentic connection between GW and another character – one that has been presumably missing for the entire first half of the novel. Not many successful, intimate relationships in W, O. Doctor Reefy's role in significant because of the close relationshi p that he had with GW's mother. Though not explicitly stated, it may have been possible that Dr. Reefy knew things about GW because of the weekly talks he had with EW. The advice he gave GW may have been similar to that of his own mother's. His relationship with HW is cowardly. Anderson describes GW's emotions towards HW in a way that suggests that GW is deeply, and intimately connected to her. However, his failure to act upon those feelings causes him to appear immature. (GW fails to see and say bye to HW on the train when he's leaving, even though HW sees him). Maturity is the one thing that W,O lacks. Incapacity of being mature is connected to the grotesques. All the characters aside from GW have “skipped” their maturation stage. This is the hope that they have lost and long to seek in/through GW.

The best aspect of this paper is the claim that you are arguing in your paper. It is really interesting to reflect on George and Elizabeth Willard’s relationship after reading your claim that the reason for why they’re relationship is so strange is because they are both immature. It actually makes it easier to understand theses characters and the relationship...
