One theme I thought interesting was how Mrs. Talbot relied on her son’s future success in the seminary school for her happiness. According to Ayn Ran, one of the people who’s views we discussed in class, that would be wrong and even selfish. It would be unfair to Mrs. Talbot and her son. Before seeing the play, I would've entirely disagreed with Ayn Ran. Watching this issue Play out on the stage, I have come to realize that there is a great area to which what blank was saying. In this case, my "Katharsis” in this play would be that I do believe it was selfish for blank to rely on blank for her happiness because he ended up having to sacrifice his own happiness for a long time for fear of hurting hers.
