How Much Land Does a Man Need - Carolina Carret
By carolinacarret, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
Pahom says,"Our only trouble is that we haven't enough land. If I had a lot of land, I shouldn't fear the Devil himself!" The theme emerges here, as it shows Pahom is not grateful for the land he has and should be.
The theme is shaped when Pahom acquires more land and is not happy because he hears of people elsewhere getting more land for less money. This is shown by this quote of Pahom, "If I take it out there, I can get more than ten times as much land for the money." In this quote, Pahom makes plans to get more land because he is not grateful for what he already has.
The theme is refined in the end of the story when Pahom is so exhausted from trying to acquire the most land possible from the Bashkirs that he dies. He says "An hour to suffer, the rest of my life to live.", showing his greed and that he believed he would be happy if he had more land. When he dies, the theme "be grateful for what you have" is refined, as Pahom would have still been alive without trying to get more and more land.The devil watches over Pahom, proving to him that land does not mean anything
