In chapter "Catorce" Ultima says "the ways of men are strange, and hard to learn". What has Antonio learned since the beginning of the novel? Are any of the ways of men becoming less confusing to him?

Are any becoming more confusing? Use textual evidence from the novel to backup your claims. Bless me Ultima By: Rudolfo Anaya, 1972.

In Bless Me Ultima, Tony is told by Ultima that the ways of men are strange and hard to learn. This is a theme that is suggested and is mostly applied and carried out by Tony as he goes through the novel, trying to learn to be a part of his family and community is some way. What Antonio must be learning at this point is that the ways of men are often violent and destructive, since at this point he's seen at least two people die horrible deaths.
