The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber

Posted at 4:56 am under Uncategorized

Did Wilson feel any attachment to either Francis and Margot? Is his sarcasm a defense mechanism or does he not care at all?

“That was a pretty thing to do,” he said in a toneless voice. “He would have left you too.”

“Why didn’t you poison him? That’s what they do in England.”

Wilson shows no emotion and does not seem the least bit in shock, why? He goes along with the Macomber’s shenanigans, never having to deal with any repercussions. Francis conquered his fear and is immediately killed by his own wife, but Wilson gets to continue life, sleeping with the wives of rich men and illegally hunting buffalos from cars. After the unfortunate events, Wilson is left completely unscathed.

    Why wouldn’t Wilson be unscathed? Do you believe he had a stake or a hand in the proceedings? Should he be blamed for these events?
