King’s tone in the opening paragraph is sarcastic towards his critics whom he is addressing. He conveys sarcasm through lines like “If I sought to answer all the criticisms that cross my desk, my secretaries would have little time for anything [else]… I would have no time for constructive work” (1), when he is writing from jail.

If placed in a different environment, then they begin to feel uncomfortable because of fear of being in a foreign society.
In the beginning, Francis compared himself to a rabbit when speaking to Wilson when faced with a lion, an animal who is described as prey, and small “I bolted like a rabbit” ( Hemingway, 3). Later on when Francis does want to be manly and hunt such as predators do, he gets shot just like the lion does. This association cannot be overlooked because of its meaning in the story. Francis went from a rabbit to a lion, who unfortunately got hunted down by hunters and they were Margot and Wilson. From a coward to a man yet was brought down by people who wanted to see him change in the first place; the irony in this symbolism is astonishing to me because at first, all Margot wanted was for her husband is to mature into a brave man yet when he does so, she kills

From day one we all knew that Alice was no sane person. She would always say random crazy things that would be funny, confusing, or just made us uncomfortable.
