Essay Topics

Let us examine Vince's character. He seems to want so much to be taken in by his family, yet he has not been heard of in the last six years. Discuss Vince's character. Create a profile of Vince based on specific examples from the story. Was/is he a good son? Is he a violent man or is he mild-mannered? Is he living a normal life or does he show some signs of the same dysfunction his other family members have?

Tilden and Bradley both had unfortunate conditions. Is it because their family is so dysfunctional that prevents them from coping normally with society? Should they have sought help instead of coming back to their parents?

Discuss the juxtaposition of the complex familial relationship this story is based on versus the fact that it happens in a calm, serene setting of a large Illinois farm.
