  • “The old man drank the last of his coffee and set the bowl before him and leaned toward the heat with his hands out. The man watched him. " (McCarthy 169).

  • "they could see out over the darkening country to the south, standing there in the wind, wrapped in their blankets, watching for any sign of a fire or a lamp. There was nothing. The lamp in the rocks on the side of the hill was little more than a mote of light" (McCarthy 9).

Explanation: The Father and the Son are just like the slanted lamp with no light, but they still try to survive and stand straight and tall in the poor surroundings.

  • "No sign of life. Cars in the street caked with ash, everything covered with ash and dust. Fossil tracks in the dried sludge. A corpse in a doorway dried to leather”(McCarthy 12).

Explanation: The destructions of the houses and the cars signifies the imminent death, but the Father and the Son did not have a hint of thought of giving up the life.
