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.

    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.
