  1. How do you think the narrator changes throughout the course of the story? Do you think his interaction with Robert has truly changed him or not?
  2. What are the different ways Carver addresses seeing in this story? Discuss the idea of seeing and how this story changes your own perspective of seeing. 
  3. Do you agree with this statement? Why or Why not?: Throughout the short story, Carver provides an easy, visual perspective of the protagonist, which aids in maintaining a better understanding during the intense yet straightforward experience. As the story progresses, the protagonist improves his mood by assisting Robert in visualizing a cathedral. This experience impacts others because it is an excellent example of why one should never judge someone based on circumstances beyond their control. Also, as Robert does for Bub, helping someone can be a life-changing experience. Even though the blind man is physically blind, the husband is the one who is unable to see from another person’s point of view. When Robert asks the husband to draw and close his eyes while drawing, he discovers a new world and realizes he has a connection with Robert. After reading the short story ive recognized that I am pretty not sure if the husband has changed. Yes, they had a moment of interaction where ill say that the husband has seen Robert for who he is, then they judgments from before, but I feel as if the story needs to continue to see if Robert has changed. But this short story was a great short story and lets readers understand several times throughout the story that we may have biased opinions. Still, we should not judge anyone because we have minor faults in ourselves and are not perfect.
