The Pearl

Chapter 5 once Juana recovers the pearl and sees Kino injured and the dead man she has an epiphany on page 60 "Juana knew that the old life was gone forever" Compare and contrast her actions with Kino's on page 61?

Seeing the dead man, and the condition of her husband, Juana knows that they will never have the peace she desired. Her husband killed a man, their future is all but lost, and their lives will be spent running. Her first reaction is to save the family.... to run.... and start over. As you can see, Juana's reaction is based upon the reality of their situation. Kino is unable to function.... he is devastated and lost.... he's been rendered immobile.
