Discussion 2

  Have you ever been in a situation where things just don’t make sense, leaving you in a state of discombobulation? This leads to many assumptions that aren’t always correct, still leaving us without the answer and full of curiosity. Lack of understanding should not automatically lead to assumption but open our minds until we acquire the correct knowledge about the situation. Pelayo was throwing away the rotten shellfish that was being washed up by the ocean and causing a foul stench which was making his young child to become ill. The skies were gray and there was very little sun on his route back home. When he came across what appeared to be a very old man face down in the mud moaning and groaning. Not being able to move as he got closer he notice that the old man had what appeared to be giant wings. Pelayo not knowing and frightened upon his discovery of what he saw. It was a man with “only a few faded hairs left on his bald skull and very few teeth in his mouth, and his pitiful condition of a drenched great-grandfather took away and sense of grandeur he might have had.” Marquez (1955).  Pelayo goes to seek his wife to show her what he had stumbled across. “They both looked at the fallen body with a mute stupor. He was dressed like a rag picker.” Marquez (1955).  They also sought help from the towns elderly woman who knew everything there was to know about life and death. As they brought her to see Pelayo’s discovery “He’s an angel,” she told them. “He must have been coming for the child, but the poor fellow is so old that the rain knocked him down.” Marquez (1955) The town caught wind of Pelayo’s finding and he held the so called angel hostage through the day in his home.ReferencesGarcia Marquez, G.

Retrieved from ilebasic?pli=1 My thesis and topic tie into effect that assumptions always don’t need to be based off what you see. I believe both could use work still, but I have been constantly in the writing center using those resources. I do think there is things I can still cut and add in attempt to become stronger. I do not feel it contains unnecessary information, but I am known to ramble.    Joshua Atkinson              With insatiable curiosity and observation, the city of London sets the scene with its sprawling urban culture as the narrator/protagonist is ineffably drawn in by the indescribable expression of a man as he, with great interest, watches the multitude traverse the streets from a coffee house. He’s curious, he’s confounded, he decides to follow. Citations are as follows;“in peering through the smoky panes into the street””a countenance which at once arrested and absorbed my whole attention, on account of the absolute idiosyncrasy of its expression””These observations heightened my curiosity, and I resolved to follow the stranger whithersoever he should go”             The man of the crowd begins with the narrator, feeling better after a long unnamed illness, sits in the window of a coffee shop watching, and identifying, the city’s
cast as they move along the street about their business. As the narrator watches the crowd he is confounded by the expression of an elderly man, seemingly the only
person of the crowd whose intent is elusive, and decides to follow him to discern his purpose. After following the man until dawn then following him almost until sunset
the next day he finally decides that he will be unable to determine the man’s purpose, and retires. 

            The connection between the thesis statement and the strongest body paragraph is sequential. The body paragraph directly follows where the thesis statement leaves off, to further explain the actions of the protagonist. 

            The reference material does seem to explain what the protagonist was thinking and why he took the actions he decided to take. He was very curious, and when faced with a man that he could not read, when the rest of the people he watched he identified easily, he decided to take actions. I believe this is evident from the reference materials. 

            I cannot see how any of the reference material that I added would detract from the original story. I do not think any information should be added or removed. 

            The biggest challenge I faced when writing this was not quite knowing if I am interpreting the material as it was meant to be interpenetrated. I believe it to be correct because I believe the author said exactly what he meant with no hidden meaning or symbolism.
