Throughout the story there are several references to Neddy Merrill’s obliviousness or forgetfulness. The first instance of this occurs when Neddy arrives at the Welchers’ house, which Neddy discovers to be empty and for sale. Neddy wonders “was his memory failing or had he so disciplined it in the repression of unpleasant facts that he had damaged his sense of the truth?” (Cheever 161). What is interesting about this, is that the realisation that Neddy’s memory is failing him does not bother him, suggesting that he does not want to acknowledge the negativity in his life. This becomes clear throughout the story.

The Contents of a Dead Man’s Pocket is a story based on the literary element man vs. self, at first, I thought this was a man vs. nature since Tom, the protagonist has a dilemma throughout the story. But it seems that the conflict he had was not when he went outside to retrieve his paper, but in a broader view, he has a conflict with his life, with his decisions, and with his marriage. The story takes place by Tom being busy at work while his wife was getting ready to go out. Tom insists to his wife that he must finish his work in order to get promoted.

This creates a dissimilarity between some of the poems and how death is presented. Long Distance is about the pain of remembering someone who has died naturally. The poem describes the narrator’s father’s failure to come to terms with the death of his wife. Although she has been dead for two years he still renews her bus pass and warms her slippers. His son cannot understand this behaviour, but the final stanza reveals that now that both his parents are dead, and despite how he felt earlier, he still keeps their phone numbers in his “new black leather phone book.” The word “new” tells us that...
