Religion has great meaning!

O'Connor, ''The River'' -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

#1: "He had found out already this morning that he had been made by a carpenter named Jesus Christ."
#2: "Kingdom of Christ"

It was interesting that Bevel (or Harry) had found out that he was made by a divine faith. I found some humor within this passage in the book (page 31) because after this quote he stated that, "he had thought that a doctor named Sladewall, a fat man with a yellow mustache who gave him shots and thought his name was Herbert (had made him), but this must have been a joke. It is interesting how humor can be brought into a story whether is it serious or not. In addition to this quote, I noticed a rhetorical strategy which was repetition. It was interesting to me that this religious word or phrase referring to Heaven was portrayed so much throughout the text.

I agree. It is always interesting to see how repetition is used. It is also interesting to see how it shapes the story.
