In A Lesson Before Dying Mr Grant Wiggins life crises were the center of the story Although he was supposed to make Jefferson into a man he himself became more of one as a result Not to say that Jefferson was not in any way transformed from the hog he was into an actual man but I believe this story was really written about Mr Wiggins Mr Wiggins improved as a person greatly in this book and that helped his relationships with other people for the most part At the start of the book he more or less hated Jefferson but after a while he became his friend and probably the only person Jefferson felt he could trust The turning point in their relationship was the one visit in which Jefferson told Mr Wiggins that he wanted a gallon of ice cream and that he never had enough ice cream in his whole life At that point Jefferson confided something in Mr Wiggins something that I didnt see Jefferson doing often at all in this book I saw a slight smile come to his face and it was not a bitter smile Not bitter at all this is the first instance in which Jefferson breaks his somber barrier and shows emotions At that point he became a man not a hog As far as the story tells he never showed any sort of emotion before the shooting or after up until that point A hog cant show emotions but a man can There is the epiphany of the story where Mr Wiggins realizes that the purpose of life is to help make the world a better place and at that time he no longer minds visiting Jefferson and begins becoming his friend Mr Wiggins
