Lucy: “Don’t touch them. Don’t touch a one of ‘em. They’re mine.” So what do you think that story is about?
Texas Ranger: Doesn’t the bear symbolize the old South and the new dog the encroaching industrialization of the North?
Walker: Duh. But the question is should the reader feel relief or sadness at the passing of the old South?
Lucy: Well, how ‘bout both?
Walker: Oh, I get it. Moral ambiguity, the hallmark of all early 20th century American fiction.
Texas Ranger: Great analysis Walker.
Walker: Thank you.
