Ep. 6 The Moon and the Lover

Treadwell, Machinal (Finish) -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

MAN:You're awful still, honey. What are you thinking about?

WOMAN:About sea shells.

This conversation means nothing to you, right? By if you watch this scene you can understand the the Young Woman (who is now Woman in this scene)is truly in love with this man. Unlike the relationship with Mr. Jones, The Woman is more confident and more relaxed when around the lover. I find it extremely funny that some people can only find true love through adultery (like the Nathaniel Hawthorne's Scarlett Letter and Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God.). But it's very understandable because the Woman didn't have anything in common with Mr. Jones. I don't think she got up one day and said "to hell with the marriage", but I think that due with the completely astranged relationship with her husband, to anybody else that she truly loves one thing will lead to another.... Just the whole entire scene is a bedroom illuminated by moonlight which show a very romantic mood unlike the honeymoon in the third episode. So, what do you think the relationship is between the Woman and the Man

Do you think she is really in love with him or just comfortable around him? Attracted to him?

I definetly think she's heavily attracted to him. Just for someone who is usually jumpy, to mingle around like THEY were married is a reason I thought they were a item.
