The Pearl: Compare-Contrast
  • The pearl was to have secured for Coyotito a good education and for Kino, a good rifle. Kino does enter the town carrying a rifle but this, in terms of the death of his son, is completely meaningless.
  • With their entrance into the town, a third procession occurs. This time, Juana is walking side by side with Kino. Both have learned much from the tragedy that they have shared. They have "gone through pain and [have] come out on the other side." There is almost a magical protection about them.
  • Kino and Juana go straight to the Gulf, where Kino gives her the pearl to throw away. This time, Juana returns it to Kino knowing that he alone must decide what to do with the pearl. He draws back his arm and flings the pearl with all his might. Finally, it settles to the bottom of the ocean.
