680 words - 3 pages

In The Whole Family, chapter ten and chapter eleven are written in two different styles of writing from the perspectives of two different people. Each paragraph is competing with the other for the romantic ending of the story. Chapter ten sets up a twist on the earlier chapters for Peggy and Dr. Denbigh to have a serious love affair using the accounts of a young boy.

"Won't their be a circus when Alice finds out that I've known things she didn't" (263). There are also Shakespearean references in this chapter. Dr. Denbigh calls Billy "Horatio," a famous character in Hamlet (256). In this play, Horatio was the only person who knew the truth about Hamlet's father. Dr. Denbigh calling Billy this name says Billy is the only person who knows Peggy and Dr. Denbigh's secret. Billy also has a pony a named "Hotspur" (260). Hotspur was a character from Henry IV. His nickname was Hotspur because he was fierce in battle and hasty with his actions. In Chapter ten, the reader is presented with the notion...
