Critical Essay by Ruth Hill Viguers

Although the events are not gentle, the relationship between Dion and Sara [in Eyes in the Fishbowl] suggests the Portrait of Jennie [by Robert Nathan]. Strange, unresolved, it will delight some young people, baffle others. Especially interesting is the characterization of Dion. To one of the students who tries to reconcile him to his very likable father, Dion exclaims, "I can't help it if I'm not rebelling in the right direction. Everybody has to rebel against what he has to rebel against." Dion is so real that what happens later must be real too. (p. 183)
