Lawrence’s story is perfect for high-school and college students because its conflict is one which they are beginning to wrestle with, money vs. love. My handout on “The Rocking-Horse Winner” examines why a Biblical passage dictates that the name of the story’s protagonist is Paul and how the theme is embodied in the six parts of the story. Major and minor characters are analyzed as are the use of irony and the presence of Aristotelian recognition and reversal at its climax. My handout, which has blanks that your students can fill in, may be used as a homework assignment or an in-class activity, particularly one in which students divide into small groups to discuss appropriate answer(s) to the blanks with you passing among them providing help when requested. An answer key is provided on a separate page at the end of the handout. Prepared by Professor William Tarvin, Ph.D., who has published many articles on literature in scholarly journals.
