the cave represents euphemism as the author portrays death as calm the man is running away from the cave (death) with rage (fire).
this shows how the man's words 'forked no lightning' he was not inspirational and nobody is listening to him.
this shows the good man's frail deeds that unfortunately did not dance in a green bay
this is a timeline of the good man's life because he went from having a hedonistic lifestyle to starting to realise what he has done and when he is facing death he regrets not thinking about the consequences
this shows the old man having an epiphany and suddenly he sees beyond sight and the deeper meaning of life the library is to represent wisdom as libraries have connotations of wisdom
this scene shows how the author is desperate for a reaction it also shows he is alone and need of help the cave makes it seems as if the walls are closing in on him so he is in need
