Summary

Anse thinks about his farm and considers his reward in heaven for toiling on the land for so long. In fact, he concocts a string of Biblical phrases that justify his belief. However, his thoughts then turn to the dentures he will get at the end of the journey.

Analysis

Anse is shown to be a hypocrite here. He thinks he works hard, but the reader learned earlier that he refuses to work.
