In Raymond Carver’s short story, “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” the nature of love remains elusive regardless of the main characters trying to define it. Mel talks about love throughout majority of the story but can never pinpoint what love actually is to him. For example, he tells his friends about an elderly couple who nearly died in a car crash, and how the old man became depressed by not being able to see his wife. When he asserts that he’ll tell everyone exactly what love is, he loses his train of thought once more and goes on to talk about how strange it is that he and the others have loved more than one person. As well as stating that Terri’s previous relationship was not love and that her ex was dangerous.
