The definition of common sense is “good sense and sound judgment in practical matters.” when we look at the island of sick monkeys and the decisions leading up to the outcome there is no “common sense”. A pretty good example comes from the part in the text where “the boss” is putting sick monkeys on an island, unbenounced to Mr. Jones “The boss of the company was having sick monkeys put in boxes and shipped out to a small island in Lake Victoria.”(pg. 41 Preston) Any person with a small inkling of common sense would know that it is a bad idea to put sick monkeys on an island together but this man it a perfect example of rational bad behavior because instead of killing the monkeys and possibly losing money, he could just send them to this island and get the monkeys from there as he needed them.

Additionally Lennie has no ability to think for himself making him easy to manipulate and control making it easier to force him into doing bad things.

A Response to Barbara Kingsolver’s The Poisonwood Bible and the essentializing of Africa: a critical double standard? Barbara Kingsolver was not able to enter the Congo/Zaire while she was writing this book.

Purcell has to say about the use of cultures in her book.

In the book, a plane is shot down and crashes onto an island. The pilot is dead, but a small group of boys survive. They attempt to survive and stay civilized, but the evil that Golding believes resides in all humans takes over which results in the majority of the group falling to barbarism.
The title, The Poisonwood Bible, is an excellent title for the plot of this book. “Tata Jesus is bangala” (331), which has two different meaning because bangala means precious and also the poisonwood tree. Reverend Price says this phrase at the end of every sermon, but he mispronounces the word bangala so that it means poisonwood tree. So the locals think he is saying “Jesus is the poisonwood tree” instead of “Jesus is precious.” This makes the title very important because it makes the Congolese not want to know God because they think He is poisonwood.
