First of all, while Meursault noticed about Maman’s death he immediately ask for leave, and took a two-hour bus to Marengo, he said that he “wanted to see Maman right away.”(4), which he can’t wait to see mother, his urgent mood had shown his care on Maman. Next, both Mersault and Maman had a unique communicating way ,which they ‘talked’ to each other using their privity, such as eye contact, smile, and even their silence, “Maman used to spent her time following me with her eyes, not saying anything”(5) this shows how close they are, and how much they love each other.
There's two ways to interpret the poem. One way is a love story while the other is a sad story. E. E. Cummings used diction like “Women and men (both little and small) cared for anyone not at all” (Cummings Line 5 and 6)to show the carelessness in the characters. People in the speaker's life are extremely careless, they show no care or concern they just go on about their lives. “Anyone was all to her.” (Cummings Line 16)This line shows the love in the person’s life and how important the character’s lover was to him.
The symbolism in, “The Jacket” supports the overarching theme: Be grateful for what is given. The boy in the story is ungrateful for the jacket his mother got for him so Soto is trying to get the point across that one should be grateful for what one is given because some people aren’t as fortunate. A person can’t be upset about what they have when there are other people who aren’t blessed enough to have it, beggars can’t be choosers. In the story, “The Jacket” Soto states, “I showed the cracks to my mother, who always seemed to be at the stove with steamed up glasses, and she said that there were children in Mexico who would love that jacket.” The mother feels that everyone should be grateful because people in other countries or cities might not have much to be grateful for. Even though one doesn’t particularly like or enjoy something, it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t treat it with respect or care about it.
