Why is the Narrator making everyone so uncomfortable? In a broad sense, we all go through puberty, we are all curious about death, and we all have had moments when we are positive that our sexual excitement is inappropriate. The idea that the author is writing from a child’s point of view with an adults intellect is important. If we were all able to express the ideas we formed, as well as images we desired as children we would all have made the adults surrounding us glance around and shuffle their feet. I do however, believe that it is important for us to remember the pure, unabashed, imaginative thoughts of our childhood. Too often are we stifled by what we believe others may think of us. This is not to say that I believe that everyone should act upon their base desires, that would be disastrous, there would be sex and murder all over the place. I am mostly just opening the door to the idea that we have turned our desires into what we think are solitary, disgusting, unnatural thoughts. In reality we all have the same base instincts, it is how we, as adults, react to these instincts that makes us connected individuals.
