It shows that he is not a enslaved monkey in a science lab, but the arrogant monkey who refuses to do the tests. He shows the people around him what it feels like to be independent, and the feeling of color. Here is a quote to represent the curiosity about him, “What -- even if we have to burn for it like the Saint of the pyre -- what is the Unspeakable Word?” (Rand 57) “For this wire is a part of our body, as a vein torn from us, glowing with our blood.

Just like the ancient monkey, Wittman has assumed many shapes to suit his purposes. In a prolonged rant, Wittman uses his own device of an open communal platform for improvisation to steal the show. The last chapter of the book is aptly called a “one-man show.” Although Wittman expresses his desire for the play to belong to the community, he uses the final act of the play as a narcissistic platform. He asserts himself and views the Chinese American society he created within the play as the easiest way to proclaim his individuality. Instead of focusing his monologue on the play being for all Chinese Americans and their inclusion in a model society, Wittman talks about himself, how he does not fit in, and how he is “unfit for office work” (322).

By putting semicolons in between the word no, it really lets the reader know that the speaker is self conscious. Instead of speaking the words, the speaker second guesses himself and decides to say it in his head.

Rice uses it perfectly in the sense of comparing our intimate moments to those of animals.
