 “A Silver Dish” by Saul Bellow

The first thing I notice is that death seems to be his favorite subject weather it's The death of a father fighting old age or terriorist excuting prisoners. The author mentions that "the papers give it to you". He means all of the fighting and Murdurs that occur in the world are brought to you by newspaper and television. It usually becomes a Dinner conversation later. That is very true about today's society as well. I would even say that there is a bigger influence of death in the news today. I can't remember the last time I turned on the news or read a paper with no killing or hostile situations. Can anyone else remember?

  1. I agree-murder and death seem to be everywhere we turn these days due to the sophistication of technology. We don't have to wonder what's going on halfway around the world anymore we just have to consult whatever technology is closest and easiest to use.
