Popular Mechanics is a short story written by an American writer, Raymond Carver in 1978. It was a story about fighting between separated wife and husband to get right to take care of their baby.

What is the author’s view? How do I know? The author’s view of separating is angry on both sides, husband and wife. Their baby is victim of their struggle. It is could be known as described by Carver (1981, paragraph.15), “You’re not touching this baby, she said. The baby had begun to cry and she uncovered the blanket from around his head.”

What is the evidence presented by the author to support ideas? The evidence to support ideas is starting from beginning of story, where the dark outside and inside house, then easily found elsewhere.

Is the evidence valid? How do I know? Yes, the evidence is valid. We know then relationship between the husband and wife has been ruined in some degree.

The evidence is relevant as well. I know where both parents fighting to “own” the baby. Unfortunately, they found no resolution who has right to take care the baby.

Have I heard/read anything similar or dissimilar? What was it? No, I never read anything similar with the plot of this short story. However, I believe there are many short stories with the same themes, family conflicts.

Do I agree or disagree with the views expressed by the author? Why? Yes, I agree with the views expressed by the author. It is because there are plenty of facts about fighting between husband and wife in daily life.

  9. The plot seemed to be very real even if our times. I guess that nowadays more and more people are divorced, so it could be a good book for them.
