Insane Slave Murders Citizens The headlines would boldly exclaim this phrase if an event such as that happened today The central event of the plot is a violent action in The Child by Tiger by Thomas Wolfe The author gives significance to the occurrence by making it reveal a general truth about human experience This universal theme becomes evident through many aspects of the story which can be analyzed and evaluated to discern their purpose These following paragraphs will support the judgement that a person in general can contain two worlds inside their psyche good and evil If the balance of these two is upset tremendous or horrible things can happen When The Child by Tiger first begins Dick Prosser is established as a well-rounded almost perfect individual Although he is a slave that doesnt restrict his amazing talents and abilities As the story progresses however a stark contrast becomes evident in Dick Prossers presence The first indication of the revelation of an underlying theme is the shroud of mystery veiled over Dick Prosser For example in the first few pages of this story a character named Pansy Harris is introduced She is portrayed as a jovial good-hearted Negro woman that assists with the kitchen duties in her owners home Her disposition quickly changes to quiet and somewhat mournful upon encountering Dick Prosser She informs her host family that she is leaving which seems as if her departure is without any reason whatsoever Secondly a dark enigmatic presence surrounded the narrator when he would see Dick The narrator once referred to as Mr Spangler speaks of the red in Dicks eyes whenever Dick would emerge from his living quarters This was presumed to be an intoxication of the spirit because Dick was a godly man The appearance of the worn-out Bible on his table was evidence that the book had been used often Spangler often refers to Dicks cat-like abilities to sneak up on people
