  • Narrator: Effects on others
  • I skipped through the rooms, down the echoing halls, shouting,"Mama, he smiled. He's all there! He's all there!" and he was. (Hurst 317) This reveals that... our narrator is hopeful and enthusiastic. He thinks that now that William has smiled he could possibly do more. 
  • Narrator: Actions
  • "So I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow" (Hurst 317).  This reveals that... our narrator (William's brother) is selfish because he would rather his brother be dead than not all there in the head. 
  • Doodle: Looks
  • "I would gather wildflowers, wild violets, honeysuckle, yellow jasmine, snakeflowers, and waterlilies, and with wire grass we'd weave them into necklaces and crowns" (Hurst 318) This reveals that our narrator is caring. He would do things to make Doodle happy, like flower crowns and Old Woman Swamp.
  • "When he was two, if you laid him on his stomach, he began to try to move himself, straining terribly" (Hurst 317). This reveals that... William is capable of walking and is definitely not immobile. He is now able to move himself a little bit at a time. 
  • "He seemed all head, with a tiny body which was red and shriveled like an old man's" (Hurst 316). This reveals that... William is dependent on everyone around him. He was born with a lot of medical problems, so his family will need to take care of him.
