In section III, Rosicky has taken the doctor’s advice to relinquish the heavy chores to his sons. He spends his time in his ‘‘corner’’ patching his sons’ clothes and reminiscing. He remembers his first days in New York City, when he came to America at the age of 20 and worked in a tailor shop. In the evening he went to school to learn English. His wages were adequate, but he never saved any money and instead loaned it to friends, went to the opera, or spent it on ‘‘the girls.’’ Soon, however, Rosicky became restless. On the Fourth of July, Rosicky ‘‘found out what was the matter with him.’’ He realized that, in the city, he was living in an unnatural world without any contact with earthly things. He began to think about going west to farm. He left New York when he was thirty-five to start a new life in Nebraska.
