With our literature teacher, we read a story called Tyres. Here is my analisis of it:
Macrocosm (historical-social context)
– War (dark)
– Life in a french village
– Love relationship (clear)
Key moment (404)
Now, they can see the war is near!
War is really happening in front of their eyes!
Love and war get interconnected (404-405)
Specularity–>he feels reglected on the body of a young boy (son of a butcher) (405)
Climax–>point of no return
– He finally feels involved/touched
(405)-> description of the act
– Full of emotions
– The N feels alive not equal to ending (407)
Dead – alive
– He’s alive but dead inside
– Stagnation (stillness)
– He never grew out of it
– Senseless life
– Couldn’t move on
-A narrator telling his memories (a flashback)
-Paing for your mistakes
-Never letting go
-Loyalty to his country/the girl
-No cutting corners
-How historical context define man
Stages of rite of passage
From not knowing that war was near to experiencing it.
Object of desire: The girl, Cecil.
Trespassing, breaking the law the father figure: When he chooses the girl instead of his father.
There should be a dare: When he breaks the tyre of the Gestapo officer, he “cuts corners”
The mischief should be owned up: when he leaves the flower.
An act of atornment: He decides he’ll never be happy again.
