Rabbit, Run

Guilt and Blame Quotes Page 1

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

He blames everything on that farmer with the glasses and the two shirts. (1.122)

This is after the lover’s lane incident. Right after he tears up the map. He seems to be referring to the guy that told him he head to know where he’s going before he can get there.

Quote #2

"He [Rabbit] is my enemy," Angstrom says. (8.91)

We wonder if Rabbit’s dad still feels way at the end of the book, after Rabbit runs from the burial service.

Quote #3

"If you have the guts to be yourself," he [Rabbit] says, "other people’ll pay your price." (7.25)

Is Rabbit talking trash out of anger, or does he really feel this way. Either way, does he feel differently at the end of the book?
