Robert has come to visit the narrator’s wife, who is quite excited to see this man whom she hasn’t seen in ten years, yet the same can’t be said of the narrator who is noticeably and vocally uncomfortable about his visit. The story is told through the narrator’s first person point of view, showcasing his thoughts and the events that take place when Robert comes to visit.

But I heard nothing of the sort. More talk of Robert.” As the story processing, he keeps mentioning Robert “the blind guy” which is very insulting and make the reader feel hate him. Also, he does
"Cathedral" opens with the narrator telling the reader in a conversational tone that a blind friend of his wife 's is coming to visit them. The narrator is clearly unhappy about the upcoming visit. He then flashes back to the story of how his wife met the blind man when she worked for him as a reader. At the time, she was engaged to marry an officer in the Air Force. When she tells the blind man goodbye, he asks if he can touch her face. The touch of his fingers on her face is a pivotal moment in her life, something the narrator does not understand.

Cathedral “Cathedral” by Raymond Carver, was focused on the issue of love and its absences and the bearing of love’s absences on marriage and individual identity. His story was involved in very little “action” with in the plot. Instead, the focus was much more on the dialogue and investigation of the theme. The surface of his story looks calm and banal, but if you go deep into it you can see, full of emotional tension, hidden memories, wounds, longing, hate, anxiety and melancholy. It is all about inner vision.
In the short story "Cathedral" by Raymond Carver his choice of narrative point of view is a glance into a cruel, non filtered mans first-person outlook on life. It provides a more depth view into the emotions, and stray of the narrator. When the narrator “speaks,” his mood and inner traits are revealed by his tone of “voice.” This adds to the powerfulness of the story because we hear things he doesn't directly or intentionally reveal; as a result, we know him at a deeper level. For instance, the narrator’s sulkiness of others’, close relationships with his wife (who is never named) is apparent from comments he makes. The unnamed narrator is self-absorbed, concerned only with how the visit with Robert will affect him. At the same time, the narrator lacks self-awareness. He pities Robert’s wife, Beulah, because her husband could never look at her, never realizing that he doesn’t actually know his own wife despite the fact that he can see her. Theres different narrative views such as: the view of "Bub" himself, the wife, and Robert. As the story goes on, the narrator's tone and improperness changes from corrosive to warm and educated.
However, she leaves out why such an accusation is absurd, because she lacks evidence to support her claim, she leaves the reader wondering why the fortress of Gisors is not a “Temple Fortress”.

Early Modernist American architect Louis Sullivan and Hudson River School painter Thomas Cole, despite a shared affinity for nature, differed in their hopes of how nature and society (or civilization) would interact in the future of America in the 19th Century. While Louis Sullivan sought a new reconciliation of nature and society, Thomas Cole, saddened by the increasing replacement of natural landscape with Man’s built environment, called for Man to develop a greater appreciation for the untouched natural world he found so compelling. Louis Sullivan felt that the collision of nature and Man brought a new opportunity to create a form of architecture greater than the sum of these two parts. He writes of this new architecture being “the completeness
People have a habit of constructing boundaries and constantly conceiving new ways to divide themselves from one another. We can observe this not only in the obvious places––such as geographical separations––but also on a more personal level––such as within relationships. Although these boundaries are formed as a self-protection mechanism with the goal of separating oneself from harm, in reality they also separate oneself from potentially positive situations. Bub, the main character in Raymond Carver’s short story “Cathedral,” is a prime example of how self-imposed limits can be detrimental to oneself and their surroundings. “Cathedral” is also an effective demonstration of the potential within everyone to stretch and approach their limits.
