****************************************** Okey, but don't you think it's fun disceting it? I'm not expecting a big win from the discussion. I'm just enjoying analyzing a story I really like and defending my position on it. I don't expect to change your opinion. Most of this analysis is for my own benefit, anyway. I think the structure of The Maltese Falcon is very nearly perfect. The first time I read it, I was 12, I didn't see the ending coming or realize that Brigid was the arch villian of the piece until that beautiful climactic scene. Now that I have a little more experience, I enjoy thinking it through.
