Robert Graves "The Shout"
For a reader who just read a title of this short story it is hard to imagine that this word includes such a great meaning in the story. It is clear what meaning this word has, but When Crossley says that he has more powers, Richard wants to see them. I think that in this moment Richard feels like at time when he met Crossley – there were contending passions in his soul, but curiosity was stronger and agitation and fear stayed in the second place. He overcame his fear. They went to the hills and Crossley wanted to show his power – his shout, but something strange happened. “Charles’ face, that was soft and changing, uncertain as a cloud, now hardened to a rough stone mask, dead white at first, and then flushing outwards from cheek bones red and redder, and at least as black as if he were about to choke. His mouth then slowly opened to the full...” This was the culmination of their dreams. I think that it was proved with the Rachel’s nightmare. Actually, they survive this nightmare together. I think that Graves had very well described the feelings of the personalities in this story. When I was reading this story I felt that I was among these characters, watching to them from my point of view. I think that I showed that dreams play the main role in this story.
What I want to say is - this was not a reader – friendly text, but on the other hand it demanded to be really in it with feelings and opinions that is why I enjoyed reading it. Eventually I got the chance to look into my dreams from different point of view.
