    9. 10. <ul><li>Much of the pleasure of the story lies in the way all difficulties and chance events conspire to produce a happy ending, a lovely “human comedy.” All the worst forebodings of solitariness, starvation, and childlessness are quieted by the steady progress of the plot towards community, abundance, and fertility. </li></ul><ul><li>-- Norman K. Gottwald </li></ul>
