  • In other words: Their love is like gold beaten to the thinness of air – their two souls have expanded into one soul.(John Donne was a metaphysical poet: British lyric poets of the 17th century, whose work was characterized by the inventive use of metaphor, and by writing about love or religion.)
  • Cyrus’s Custom Cabinets and Carpentry, Cyrus Blanchard and Son, Prop. (Answer: page 7)
  • Vanni is halfIrish, half Indian. She loves to write. When she speaks, she’s very confident. She is very skilled in the art of insulting people and is the only person to have ever stood up to Mr. Locheed. She is in love with Jake. You can’t say: “My name is Vanni,” “I’m half Irish, half Indian,” “I like to write,” “I like Jake, “My nose is huge” etc.
  • Jake Blanchard:The main character of the novel, Jake has a true passion for screenwriting. Since he works for his father, who is a carpenter, he is skilled in woodworking. Sometimes he can be shy, especially around Alba - who he has a crush on. He can be self-conscious about how others see him, but he is very comfortable with his friends Instant and Vanni. You can’t say: “My name is Jake,” “Mr. and Mrs. Blanchard are my parents,” “I want to be a screenwriter,” “I love Alba” etc.
  • Instant:Instant is Jake’s best friend. In school, he is considered intelligent because he can answer questions in an instant. This is due to his eidetic (or photographic) memory, which means he can memorize anything. However, he doesn’t always understand the things he memorizes. He is a musician at the arts school and plays tenor saxophone. You can’t say: “My name is Instant,” “I am Jake’s friend,” “I have a photographic memory” etc.
  • Mr. Cyrus Blanchard:  He is Jake’s dad as well as a carpenter. He owns his own woodworking business and wanted Jake to join in as well.

Mr. Blanchard is a strong person who wants the best for Jake.  You can’t say: “I am Jake’s dad”, “My name is Mr. Blanchard” etc . . .
  • Romeo and Juliet:  This is one of the most famous plays written by William Shakespeare. This is a tragic love story about how 2 lovers, Romeo and Juliet, cannot be together because their families are enemies. At the end, Romeo poisons himself and Juliet stabs herself.  You can’t say: “I am Juliet/Romeo, I love Juliet/Romeo.” etc . . . .
