Wang Lung's second son emerges in this section as a coherent compliment to his first. Whereas the elder son is a scholar, fond of city ways and his delicate wife, the younger son is shrewd and practical. He has thrived in his business and wishes to have a wife more like his mother than Lotus. Thus each son expresses a half of Wang Lung -- his eldest captures his ambition for beautiful things, his younger captures his business-sense and work ethic. Neither son, however, seems to show Wang Lung's tender-hearted nature.

So you don't think he has similar morals to the Old Lord of the House of Hwang?
