It is such a good story written by Prosper
Merimee, the translator of much Russian
literature in France. It is about the family, and a
son that once in his life he made mistake and the
as a punishment his father took in his life.
Mateo Falcone is one the most respective person in their
town, he has a good reputation and said that he is good as friend and as
dangerous as enemy that’s why no one was dare to do something against him.
He is good in gun shooter and that’s the thing that gave him a good reputation.
He has two daughter and a son named Fortunato. His
daughters had their own family only Fortunato was left and he wants
Fortunato to go after his footstep to continue what he had started, he wants to
maintain their good reputation in their town even if he had gone.
But sad to say Fortunato did not able to do it and he is the
one who ruined the good reputation of his father when he accept the silver and
hide Gianetto, the prisoner in their house. And when his cousin gave him a
watch just for him to tell where he hide the prisoner and he also accept it and
he told them the place where the prisoner was hidden.
When Mateo came home and when he heard what his son
did, he can’t believe that Fortunato will able to do it and ruined their good
reputation. And as a punishment he delivered his son not too far away from
their house, he let him pray some prayers and Fortunato keep on pleasing his
father to forgive but Mateo ignored him and after he prayed Mateo shoot his
son. Guisepa was not able to do something to save her son and all she can do is
The main character of this story which
is Mateo Falcone shows an irresponsible model as a
father, he able to kill his own son just of one
mistake. There is many ways to punish your child
and taking his/her life is another story.
Reputation will not bring back the life of
your child and actually killing his son is also
ruined much more his reputation. He chose to loose
his son just to justify the mistake of Fortunato.
The most important in this world is our family,
no matter what happened our family is our
strength and we must treasure each and
everyone. The mistake of someone is not enough
reason to hurt anyone and most of all it’s not a
license for us to take his/her life. Family is more
important than anything else, from it is a great
blessing that we will received God and we must
take care of it.
