Historians of architecture and culture have marveled at these wonders, noting that they are best understood as monuments to people who find value and meaning in doing. At first blush, it would seem that the world of the makers of Europe 's great cathedrals could not be further removed from the world of working class people in Raymond Carver 's fiction.
