With “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings,” we see an angel who has arrived to collect our main characters’ son. This is his mission. This is his quest. However, due to his crash-landing and imprisonment, the angel is unable to complete his goal.
Consider “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” from multiple angles.

First, do Foster’s requirements for a quest apply to a character whose mission is thwarted from the start? Is there any difference between the “stated reason to get there” and the “real reason” (Foster 3) when a character is so quickly imprisoned?
Whether or not you believe in angles, accept the conceit of their abilities for our discussion. Why is the angel unable to complete his mission? Why can’t he overpower mankind? Why isn’t an additional angel sent to bring the son to heaven? Is Marquez making a statement about humanity with this story?

For our final discussion question, you will write about either “The Swimmer” or “The Man Who Was Almost a Man.” Here we have two characters on very different quests: for Cheever, a middle aged man journeying back home through the swimming pools of his wealthy neighbors; for Wright, a young man on a quest to get an object he believes will make him manlier. Though both are on journeys, one character’s is coming to an end while the other is just beginning.
