Anthony Szczesiul has a more clear and obvious argument than compared to that of Edwin Fussell through the reading of his short, detailed analysis of Winesburg, Ohio . Szczesiul’s key point opposes that of Fussell’s: George Willard fails to mature during the course of the novel. He defends this claim with the idea that George is never able to act upon his emotions – thus preventing him from doing a lot of different things. Szczesiul also mentions Elizabeth Willard’s death and how even through that tragic experience, George does not have a proper reaction. Instead of feeling depressed, George mentions the inconvenience his mother’s death brought him. Szczesiul makes accurate conclusions about George’s character and the whole idea of George leaving Winesburg, Ohio. He suggests that George’s inability to act upon his emotions will lead to his failure as a writer. Although Szczesiul identifies this as the main consequence of George’s immaturity, this is where his argument is flawed. Szczesiul fails to mention the cause of George’s immaturity and merely provides examples of it. With that said, I agree with Szczesiul to the extent of saying that George has not matured, however, I went beyond in providing a reason why: his mother.

29 Jung Artifact 1 – Exercise 7: Identifying Problems and Articulating Questions for Paper 2 Linda Jung WR150 A1 February 20, 2013 Three problematic things about In Our Time : 1. Inserting stories in the second half of the book in which Nick is not the main character in. (p. 69-103) This is problematic because it’s interesting how Hemingway structured his book. Besides from having the vignettes appear every other chapter, the first half of the stories all have to do with Nick and what happens in his childhood. However, after “Chapter VII” the stories include characters that have no clear connection to Nick or anyone else that is mentioned in the first half. Nick becomes the central character in the stories again at the very end. Question: How does the structure of Hemingway’s novel affect his message? Or more specifically, what is Hemingway’s message given the structure of his novel? 2. The theme of idealism vs. realism in the novel. (“The Revolutionist”, “Mr. and Mrs. Elliot”, and “The End of Something”) It is unclear to see the pattern of idealism and realism appearing throughout the stories. It is evident in “The Revolutionist”, “Mr. and Mrs. Elliot”, and “The End of Something” however that cannot be said about all of the stories. Mrs. Elliot seems to be an idealist because she wants to have a child but in reality, at her age, the chances are very slim. The Magyar in “The Revolutionist” is also an idealist.

    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.
