Answer the following questions

Answer the following questions

  • How would you describe the author’s attitude, or tone, toward the “old ones”? In contrast, what is his attitude toward the young people of today?

  • What does Anaya mean when he says that his grandfather was “connected to the cycle that brought the rain or kept it from us”?

  • What qualities of old people does Anaya remember from his childhood, and how are these qualities different from the images created by the American mass media?

  • Review the chart that you created as you read. What beliefs, values and feelings influences the way Anaya looks at “the pain of the transformation into old age’? Cite evidence.

  • What is the “new time” that Anaya’s grandfather mentions? What does the author imply about this “new time”?

  • Why do you think the author chooses to end the essay with the very same words with which he begins?

  • What perspective does Anaya offer on the way old people should be treated as they age and die—do you agree or disagree with him? Explain.

  • List three “life lessons” that Anaya learns from his grandfather and describe how he learns them (hint: one was learned when Anaya stepped in an ant bed).
