I think that Wilson is implying that Ruben does not want to let go of Eugene’s pigeon's because he does not want to let go of his dead friend. Ruben and Eugene are both young when Eugene dies, and Eugene leaves Ruben his pigeon's but ask him to let them fly away. (2474) If the pigeons fly away, then he will have nothing that physically ties Eugene to earth, so he doesn't let them fly free.
I agree with Ariel. Even in today's society people look for ways to keep spiritual or physical connections with their dead friends or relatives. Ruben keeping the pigeons just shows how much their friendship means to him.
I agree with Ariel and her statement. In the book, Reuben clearly stated that despite Eugene's request to get rid of the pigeons if he so happened to die, he was going to keep the pigeons forever because they remind Rueben of Eugene. The metaphor would have to be an "everlasting friendship" because before the passing of Eugene, him and Rueben did everything together, but because of the death, that can't happen anymore. Rueben didn't want to let death be the breaking point of his friendship with Eugene, so he decided to keep Eugene's pigeons as a rememberance of Eugene anda the great times they once shared.
I agree Ariel. There is a distinct connection between the pigeons and him not wanting to let go of his dead friend. I also agree with KeShon that this exemplifys a everlasting relationship. When you tend not to let things go, thats a symbol of holding on and the important place that holds in your life. This is perfectly normal.
I agree with Ariel. People who are not ready let go that has passed tend to relish on items that person may have cherished in order to bring back good memories.
I agree with Ariel, because it's obvious that ruben can't let go of jis friend and there holds on to the pigeons that remind him of Eugene.
I agree with Ariel, Kaila, and KeShon. Holding on to personal belongings gives people a sense of remembrance and safety. It gives them a little piece of the person they've lost. In reference to Kaila's comment and relating back to me, I, personally, do things such as keep pictures and obituaries to remember those that I've lost.
I believe that the pigeons are being used as sacrifices to God.Ruben sells the pigeons for a profits, and the pigeons are killed. The man who buys the pigeons kill them and use their blood to conduct some type of religious ceremony by himself out in Mr. Seth's Garden. The book doesnt say this directly, but you can imply that the blood is being used for a religious purpose.
