Abstract: This thesis consists of three stories which, in their own way, do a single thing. It has best been described by Tennessee Williams (in The Night of the Iguana) as "open gates of communication between people." Thus, one may note that each of the stories begins at a point where the characters are in a state of "incommunicativeness." Yet, as they close, it can be seen that a kind of rapport has developed between them. Of course the degree and permanence of this Is another thing. But that, it would seem, is more correctly suited to the structure of the novel than the framework of a short story.
