Transcript of The Pearl
An example of irony would be when Juana did not know that she had sucked out all the poison from her baby. She gathered some brown seaweed and made a flat damp poultice out of it. This is as good of a remedy as anything and probably better than what the doctor could have done. However, the remedy lack of its authority because it was simple and did not cost anything. The stomach cramps would not come to Coyotito. Perhaps Juanna had sucked out the poison in time, but she has not sucked out her worry over her first born. The mood of the story for this chapter is sad at first because he can not afford to cure his son, but later on the mood changes to happyness because he discovers the Pearl of the world which is going to change his entire life. A few examples of flashbacks that were found in chapter two are;
Pg.15 Second paragraph, “...she had prayed that they might find a pearl with which to hire the doctor to cure the baby...”
Pg.15 Second paragraph, “Perhaps Juana sucked out the poison in time, but she had not sucked out her worry over her first-born."
Pg.20 First paragraph, “...it was the hand he had smashed against the doctor’s gate and the torn flesh of knuckles were turned grayish white by the sea water.” Some examples of hyperboles that were found in chapter two were;
Pg18 Second paragraph, “His heart beat out a heavy rhythm and the melody of the maybe pearl shrilled in his ears.”
Pg19 Third paragraph, “Kino lifted the flash, and there it lay, the great pearl."
Hyperbole examples found in this novel are;
Pg.18 Second paragraph, “ His heart beat out a heavy rhythm and the melody of the maybe pearl shrilled in his ears.”
Pg.19 Second paragraph, “ Kino lifted the flesh, and there it lay, the great pearl, perfect as the moon."
A simile found in page 14 in the second paragraph, “Part of the far shore disappeared into a shimmer that looked like water.”
The pearl would be considered a symbol for this chapter because it will dictate his including his family's future.
