An analysis of the story, “Cathedral”, by Raymond Carver.

This paper briefly examines “Cathedral” by Raymond Carver, which is a short story that depicts the blindness of a man in his society and the role that a blind man had played in his life.
“In the first part of the story, the reader can feel that the narrator harbors negative traits against other people. This was apparent when a blind man, named Robert and an old friend of his wife, came over to their house. The narrator was not so enthusiastic about Robert visiting them. First, because he does not know him, and second because he doesn’t like blind people. He has an unpleasant impression about being blind.”
