Annotation

Annotates and comments, often line by line, on familiar and obscure details and allusions to the people, places, things, events, and other references found in the story. Opens with a discussion of the story's composition and critical marginalization before moving into an explication beginning with the title and closing with the story's final derogatory question linking Paco's flawed "kind of blood" to his sexual orientation, thereby attributing his moral corruption to biology. Topics covered include sexuality, social stigma, and unreliable narration.
