The House of the Spirits

Recommended Posts

I am currently analyzing this passage from the House of the Spirits for english:

After the earthquake where it talks about Jamie and Nicolas returning to Tres Marias and I was wondering if the twins could symbolize two countries that were growing with the ideas of socialism but I was not sure on what countries they would be. The passage is from the chapter Revenge and it starts with "the Twins were so different they did not even look like brothers.... and continues till "forcing to admit his error"

what else do you believe the twins can symbolize or parallel?

The central theme we seemed to focus on last year was the effect of generations. Maybe you can talk about them as foil characters who emphasize the theme that newer generations take traits from older generations and improve upon them in their unique way? I'm not sure if my response is academically cheating..I sure hope not.
