Introduction
– See “English - John Steinbeck Research Paper.docx”a.
Author’s Biography
– See Introduction b.
Thesis Statement
– In John Steinbeck’s short story “Flight,” he usesanimal references, physical challenges, and moral deterioration aselements of his style.i.
Specific 1
– Animal Referencesii.
Specific 2
– Physical Challengesiii.
Specific 3
– Moral DeteriorationII.
Specific 1 (Animal References)
– Edward J. Piacentino’s Criticisma.
Quote 1
– “Dubbed a sheep, a cow, and then a chicken, Pepe, at least inhis mother’s eyes, is, at this stage of his innocent life, much like adomesticated farm animal that needs to be fed, sheltered, and generallywatched over by others.”“[Mama Torres] playfully and simplistically points out to him, ‘…asneaking lazy coyote came out of the brush and looked at me one day.That must have made thee so.’ The coyote mentioned here is, of course, awild animal, an appropriate reference to highlight Pepe’s primitiveanimalism.” b.
Quote 2
– “The whole action of the story goes to show how man, evenwhen stripped of all his civilized accouterments…, is still something morethan animal.”c.
Quote 3
– “Pepe’s animal-like nature is further emphasized by therepetition of his snake-like appearance, and also as he throws his big black knife into a redwood post, his wrist, it is noted, ‘flicked like the head of the snake.’ This last image, while reinforcing Pepe’s quick, seeminglyinstinctive manner of reacting, should perhaps also be viewed in the broader context in which the snake is a universal emblem of evil. In thiscontext, the snakelike quickness that Pepe displays in this basicallycarefree activity of knife throwing importantly reflects his impetuousnature and foreshadows the ease with which he succumbs to evil inmurdering a man in Monterey.”d.
Story Quote
– “Some lazy cow must have got into thy father’s family,else how could I have as son like thee.”III.
Specific 2 (Physical Challenges)
– Edward J. Piacentino’s Criticisma.
Quote 1
– “The snakelike quickness that Pepe displays in this basicallycarefree activity of knife throwing importantly reflects his impetuousnature and foreshadows the ease with which he succumbs to evil inmurdering a man in Monterey.” b.
Quote 2
– “Pepe’s wrist and the defensive reaction of a distracted snake becomes functionally appropriate in the quarrel scene for defining another significant facet of Pepe’s character.”c.
Quote 3
– “Pepe moves farther and farther away from sheltereddomesticity into the unpredictable and unprotected realm of primitivenature.”d.
Story Quote
– “He chewed slowly and drank occasionally from the water  bag. His little eyes were slumberous and tired, but the muscles of his face
