After you have read the Rulfo story, think about the following questions and post substantive answers to several of them:
Who is the main character”
What is this story actually about? Sounds easy, right?
Why does the colonel speak to the main character but not look at him? Did you think about this?
What is the son’s attitude toward his father, saving his father, carrying him back home?
How is this the story of two sons?
What do the sons have in common? Which one suffered the most?
What is the theme of this story if you had to break it down to one line?
Is the setting of the story important? How?
