The setting of the story "The Rocket" is a normal house with a junkyard next to it with a rocket in it with trees and a river surrounding the house.
on the left side Boboni is in the dining room. on the left he is with his wife near the closet. Boboni is loving to his family, and optimistic
"we will remember it always papa. we will never forget"
"you'll kill them""No no" Yes you will i feel it."..."ill stay here" she said "you will understand; you will see then" he said and smiled
"Idiot!" snapped barmante. "how will you choose? who will go?"
bramante is outside boboni's house near the river talking to him. Bramante is a rude and negative old man he is the foil in the story
Foil : Bramante
"fool!" cried bramante. "you'll never go. this is a rich mans world!!"
A foil is a character that will make the main character look better and make his character traits more obvious to the reader.
In the story what he dose for his family and the way he talks to them shows his love for them and his optimism in the first quote the children are thanking him for what he did. in the second Quote he is optimistic that his wife will understand what is going on and why.
these quotes show that bramante is rude and negative because he dosent think that bodoni will ever go to mars and he yells at boboni.
