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 publication history and critical reception before moving into an explication beginning with the title and closing with the story's final lines on the father's failure to grasp the enormity of his son's trauma. Makes frequent biographical connections and covers topics such as the father-son relationship and the son's confrontation with mortality.
