How does "People In Hell Just Want A Drink Of Water" by Annie Proulxs demonstrate that "violence, the land, and hopeless love are the fundamentals of Western myth"? Please give a summary with quotes that illustrate this point.
This story is about two families, the Dunmires and the Tinsleys, who live in the Laramie plains. They both have sons, Jax and Ras respectively, around the same age, but are otherwise very different. Jax stays and becomes successful, while Ras leaves and becomes disabled. Ras returns and behaves in socially strange ways, eventually being castrated by Jax due to his outsider status. These events show the themes of attachment to land, violence, and, to an extent, love.
