Life of Pi
by Yann Martel
Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 48 Summary
How It All Goes Down
- In this chapter, Pi tells us how Richard Parker was named.
- A panther had been killing people in Bangladesh. A professional hunter set up a trap.
- Instead of the panther, a tiger shows up. He tranquilizes the tiger. In a clerical error, the hunter's name, Richard Parker, gets attached to the tiger.
- Thus we have Richard Parker the tiger.
