By Sofia Mele, Francisco Aresi, Francisco Montoya and Oliverio
Astrologer: He pretends to be an astrologer to earn money
by cheating people. He is married and he has children. With
his wife he lives in a town outskirts a city. The astrologer had
a dark past where he tried to kill Guru Nayak.
Guru Nayak: He was a man that had a problem in the past
with the astrologer. That problem was caused because of
several fights, that finally ended up with the astrologer
Wife: she is beautiful, she has kids with the astrologer. In the
night when the astrologer tells her the truth,she reacts well
when this happens in the story.
Point Of View
Point of view:
The point of view is first person.The Astrologer speaks in first
person, but his point of view is because he is the main
character that has a greater knowledge about what is going
on in the story.He remembers all what happen to him throw
out the story with great accuracy.
Setting in place
Setting in place: A town in the outskirts of a city
located in India we can say this because the place
located a poor village and the language used threw
out the story.
Setting in time
Setting in time: Post colonial time, XX century we can say
this because of the transport used Jutcka that is a synonym
of horse cart.
Language: It represents the low social class of the region
and the use of dialect typical of India, just like the use “
Jutka-drivers” or “ Jaggery” or “ Pyol”. They use this indian
dialect because the british colonized india and the
descendants spoke in english.
Our comment about
Our comment of the ending is that the astrologer tells the
truth to his wife and that is a very important thing because
he is sincere and that makes his wife trust in him.
