| Thoughts of Ms. Bencomo's students
I showed it to my students for English class. Some students liked it a lot. Some students thought it was difficult to understand. But as for myself, I thought it was captivating and deep. I first read Paul's Case in a college English course and remember it as one of my favorite short stories. I felt rather empathetic to the character, Paul being the protagonist, the world the antagonist. I appreciated the symbol of the flowers and the color red, as a representation of his mother. In his father, I saw a man who could not identify at all with his son. Despite the fact that the story was written in 1906, it could easily take place now, 100 years later. Some of my students didn't like that it left out some parts from the story in the movie. Some didn't like that it ended abruptly. They thought it needed more detail. My other students liked that it was a psychological case. It made them think enough about life. And thinking is one of the things I like to have my students do!
