Gideon: He is the servant of the Farquars. He knows witchcraft. He is Teddy's friend, but tries to not to be close to him because of their racial differences. He uses his witchcraft to save him though.
Exposition: The story takes place in South Africa. The setting is at the Farquar's home. It is 1924. The Farquar's are kind, simple people. They have a son name Gideon, which is their only child. Their servant is a native boy named Gideon.
Conflict: Teddy gets snake venom in his eye. Gideon treats Teddy with some herbs. When people hear of it, they want to know what he used. Teddy doesn't want to tell anyone because that and his culture is all he has.
Resolution: The Farquar's decide not to try to get information about the treatment out of Gideon anymore. They now realize that Gideon's culture is all he has left. They live in peace.
Theme: The theme of this short story is to show how culture makes a person who they are. There is a major culture clash depicted in this story. No one can never take what makes a person away from them. Personal Reaction: This was a good short story.
