“I am a man,” Kino replied in an exhausted tone. “I shall never give up.” I pushed further, eager to leave the cave and get rid of the pearl, “But look at what has become of you! You have now become a man of selfishness and greed. This evil pearl has completely changed your personality!” Kino grunted in response, “I am not acting with greed. I am simply searching for a better life.” “Kino, you have defied the pearl buyers and passed up 1,500 dollars!” I sighed as I pictured the large bundle of money we could have gained.
Chocolate is rated in percentage of smoothness and sweetness. I am far from being a chocolate connoisseur, but I know what I like. As with everything, the price of chocolate seems to play into the comparison by the percentage it is given. The higher the percentage of the chocolate, because of the cocoa and less milk fats it contains, the more expensive the chocolate will become. This is where we get the different types of milk chocolates, such as the great Hershey Kisses, or the wonderful creamy Ice-Cube.
Today the panning process is done by a machine but, it has remained essentially the same since the last 300 years. The french would start by rocking the almonds in a bowl of sugar and syrup until the almonds were completely coated in a candy shell, basicly what they do to make jelly beans. Today though, large rotating pans do the hard work, while master confectioners apply their true art in adding just the right ingredients to create the perfect, smooth shell for the beans. Somehow the two processes made their way into America. Works Cited Jelly Belly https://jellybelly.com/ Grossman, Samantha Time.com.
When Kino discovered the Pearl he thought that it would take him out of poverty and into a life of happiness. The pearl was not meant for anyone to find, and the finding of one was luck, “a little pat on the back by God.” The problem in this story is that Kino is trying to sell his pearl and every one bids a low price. That means he keeps it longer and everyone is trying to steal it from him. The conflict is man vs. man the reason why is that a lot of people are trying to steal it from him the day he got it. It went to the point that people were tracking him for it and attacking him in his sleep.
No, you had got greedy, Silas. You had made your paint your god, and you couldn’t bear to let anybody else share in its blessings. (47) The greed of Silas Lapham led him to remove his part... ... middle of paper ... ... help my poor wife.” (331) As Rogers leaves Silas feels like he has done the wrong thing when in reality he did the right thing in not scamming more people but all it got him was more sadness. The story of Silas Lapham is an odd one in that when Silas is greedy and dishonest he gains everything, but as he starts to change into an honest person he loses everything. Silas lost everything as he became a better person because everything that he wished to obtain was hollow and could only be attained through deception and lies.
Initially, the pearl represents hope and goodness as he sees it as a way for a better future for him and his family. However, the greed that arises in the community and himself corrupts the pearl’s symbolic meaning. Consequently, Kino’s avarice provokes him to kill a man who attempts to steal the pearl, resulting in the abandonment of his home. Upon fleeing, the pearl is yet again, figuratively transitioned from greed to destruction. His impulsiveness to attack the trackers following them results in the unnecessary death of his child.
The doctor in chapter one, at first uninterested in helping a patient that cannot pay, is now more than willing to help when he hears about Kino’s pearl. The pearl merchants try to take advantage of Kino’s lack of pearl selling knowledge to try and buy his pearl for a low price. Kino himself allows his greed to take control of himself and only regrets it when he realizes his son is worth more than the money he should receive. By the end of the story, the pearl no longer symbolizes hope, but now symbolizes evil and anguish. It’s great value became the primary motivation factor for greed, prompting evil and injustice wherever it went.
