An Injustice for All in Sonata Allegro Form
Wideman’s quotation from Brothers and Keepers could be interpreted to say a number of different things. The interpretation I could make is no person could explain the reason things are the way they are in life. In trying to come up with a logical answer they dwell on it and it becomes even more confusing.

How rediculous would it life be if every time a close friend or family member died someone would go on a crime spree. But metaphorically speaking it gives us a canvas paint a picture on. After the epilogue Wideman jumps straight into an important part of the story, the death of Robby’s friend Garth in Robby’s point of view. This is important because this is what sparks Robby’s behavioral changes. Then John, as an outsider looking in on the situation moves onto how he views Robby. He understands Robby’s behavior is wrong but he lets it go because of all the awful things that Robby has gone through growing up. Wideman now finds that his mother is starting to accept that Robby is a product of his environment and the events lead up...
