I think this is most pronounced at the end of the book. Both Kino and the Pearl have undergone a transformation. THe Pearl is now "gray and ulcerous." Similarly Kino has become an outcast, no longer the man he was once. He feels "gray and ulcerous" himself. He has lost his baby and the respect of his wife and friends.
