Henry James's "The Pupil" Please post by March 13. Original post: Wed 3/9/2011 at 12:43 PM
 

For your Post on “The Pupil” reflect briefly on how the story is an example of psychological realism.  Be sure to give examples from the story of how James pushes us to enter into the minds of the characters, rather than get carried away by spectacular events.

Also, PART 2, please post one response to a classmate's post on James.

   I see a combination of events in "The Pupil." Pemberton seemed to truly care about Morgan and enjoy being with him even when things such as not having money, neglect, etc. was continuous.He seemed to feel for Pemberton as a father would a son(overprotective and not wanting him hurt.) Then on the other hand, he seemed to tease him such as building him up about Morgan leaving with him, and then just leaving alone. This is hard to figure, but I think Morgan looked up to Pemberton, but could have had a more adult attatchment in retrospect. Maybe that's why Morgan's parents were not sure about him or didn't pay him; they could have seen what the attatchment was for them and wanted him to leave. His death, I feel it was the excitement and shock of seeig him, but possibly anxiety over leaving his parents. We all know those things which parents do that annoy us, but they are still our parents and when they are not with us daily as Morgan was with his parents, he could have realized that he would be leaving them and was overwhelmed! This could be totally off, but is my opinion.
 
 Saturday, March 19 would be better for me. My daughter is going to prom for the first time and we have a full day! It's in your future, Dr. Abernathy! Enjoy thise years with her, because she'll be grown one day!

I agree with you examples of realism. I can see how Pemberton really did truly care about Morgan. It was in a weird way, but in the end he ultimately cared. In a way it was like a love hate relationship.

I also agree with your intrepretation of the examples of realism in this story. Pemperton was definitely close to Morgan.  He developed a strange fatherly love for him. I believe he was closer to Morgan than his own father, since he was with him the majority of the time.

   Dr. Abernathy, I'll check a few more times tonight, but I don't have anyone to respond to yet! Thanks
