“ The Seventh Man” Critical Review The story “ The Seventh Man” by Haruki Murakami tells of a childhood expericence that would scar the seventh man for life. He tells about his experience of being in the eye of a typoon. The Seventh man is a short story about beinging in the eye of a hurricane. The seventh man heard the storm settle down so he asked his dad if he would go for a walk, he said yes but that if he saw or heard any signs that the storm was picking back up that he was suppost to run back home.

Eventually Doodle did learn to walk, but Brother was still not satisfied, he wanted his brother to be able to run and swim like all the other kids. Time was running out on Brother’s plan, so in the middle of a thunderstorm he started running away from his brother. Because of the strain on his heart Doodle died. His last words were “don't leave me Brother”. I believe The Scarlett Ibis is the best story because

There is an explanation in the text when it says, “The knowledge that Doodle’s and my plans had come to naught was bitter, and that streak of cruelty within me awakened.”(Hurst 394). This became somewhat of a domino effect, and after he let his anger absorb him his story became a much darker one. Due to his anger, he pushed his little brother too far and lost the person who meant the most to him in the process. The title connects to the story because “The Scarlet Ibis” is a key component in the story.
The irony of this situation stems from Golding’s characterization of the officer, Although the naval officer rescues the boys, the concluding pages of Lord of the Flies show that the officer is dissatisfied by the boys inability to remain civilised while stranded on the island. Ironically, this same officer who contributes to this mystical “world of grownups” relates to the boys in some ways. The naval officer partakes in war and murder, which are strangely the things the boys partake in while stranded on the island. The idea of inherent evil is originally stemmed through a quote by Golding himself,“Before the Second World War I believed in the perfectibility of social man; that a correct structure of society would produce goodwill; and that therefore you could remove all social ills by a reorganisation of society... but after the war I did not because I was unable to. I had discovered what one man could do to another...

However, Huck feels obligated to protect Jim, and convinces the slave catchers that it’s his sick father in the boat, evading the capture of Jim.
