  • Quality Of Patrick's Life

    The discussion on Patrick Dismuke's condition concentrated on his incapability to improve. After reviewing his symptoms and considering possible scenarios resulting from certain kinds of treatment, such as the tube that delivered nutrients into his veins that "broke the barrier between blood and air" and became "a bacteria-laden Trojan horse, opening the door to infection", we attempted to come to a consensus on what would constitute a quality life, as deliberated among the committee.

  • Patrick Searches
    777 words
    Patrick Lewis is a lost soul, a searcher on a constant journey.

He is always looking for something and Ondaatje revels this to the reader "He searched out, things he collected things". (Ondaatje 157). The title of Ondaatje's novel, In the Skin of a Lion can also be used to illustrate Patrick's perpetual search. In the preface, Ondaatje's takes ...

Patrick Lanigan, now known as Danilo Silva, was living a normal life, not making a big deal about the ninety million dollars he h...
  • Patrick In The Skating Scene
