Homework Help: Lit

Posted by Jon on Saturday, August 9, 2008 at 12:14pm.

(Both from "The Rocking-Horse Winner")

Paul's mother can best be described as; loving and gentle, sensitive and kind, cold and distant, or simple and carefree.

I think it's a toss between loving and gentle and sensitive and kind but I also felt that she was cold and distant at times.


The climax of the story would be when; Bassett reports Paul has won over 70 thousand lbs, Oscar bets on Malabar, Paul dies, Paul discovers the name of the derby winner and screams "Malabar."

I automatically thought Paul dies but then the story is about the family being poor and such so I'm thinking it's when Bassett reports that he won.
