Flowers For Algernon Part 6
Kenneth Vazquez & Monisha Foster
The Voice of Charlie
Charlie’s attitude and emotion in his writing is now scarce, concerned and even a little frustrated. Charlie is confusedex. Mrs. Flynn called a strange doctor to see me. She was afraid I was going to die. I told the doctor I wasn’t too sick and that I only forget sometimes.When I read this I read it as if he if confused and maybe just a little scared
Charlie’s vocabulary is still complex and he is understanding thing at a whole different level. He talks about how confusing and stressful things are becoming. He has become so educated and intellectually advanced that he looks over old progress reports and he unable to read and comprehend what he was writing. He has reached a whole new level and at this point in time isn’t quite sure how to handle it.
Ex. “I was looking at some of my old progress reports and it’s very funny but I cant read what I wrote.”
Right here he is at a whole new level
Ex. “Please… please let me not forget how to read and write..”
Right here he is feeling very much overwhelmed and insecure
Charlie’s grammar is slowly fading away he is misspelling words.
He has lost his ability to articulate in an accurate way, and has stopped looking for words in the dictionary. He at first is hesitant and wishes he doesn’t forget how to read and write.
People in Charlie’s Life
In this part of the story we discover a little bit about some people that were before unmentioned. We see changes in the way people treat and look at Charlie. He is now acknowledged as a regular person instead of a mentally challenged man. Although, all of this has now changed, he has become isolated from the world. He is afraid to be made fun of again.
Charlie has become hopeless and isolated from the people that are the closest to him. Ms. Kinnian, who he once claimed to be in love with has come to see him, and he told her to go away for he is terrified she will laugh at him now that he is not a intelligent person anymore. He feels bad about having to let her go, for he still cares deeply for her. She pays his rent, and he feels uncomfortable with her doing that for him.
Ex. “She cried and I cried too but I wouldn’t let her in because I didn’t want her to laugh at me. I told her I didn’t like her anymore. I told her I didn’t want to be smart anymore. That’s not true”
