Sinclair Ross, "The Lamp at Noon," The Harbrace Anthology of Short Fiction, 160.And always the wind, the creak of walls, the wild lipless wailing through the loft. Until at last as he stood there, staring into the livid face before him, it seemed that this scream of wind was a cry from her parched and frantic lips. He knew it couldn't be, he knew that she was safe within the house, but still the wind persisted as a woman's cry. The cry of a woman with eyes like those that watched him through the dark. Eyes that were mad now-lips that even as they cried still pleaded, "See, Paul-I stand like this all day. I just stand still-so caged! If I could only run!"In Sinclair Ross' "The Lamp at Noon," the wind is a symbol that Ross utilizes to bring emphasis upon the main theme of the story. The wind is a destructive force of nature. The wind, seems an incessant antagonist. Ross uses vivid imagery, "And always the wind, the creak of the walls, the wild lipless wailing through the loft" (966). The "livid face" (966) even contains his wife's pleas that they leave the oppressive farm. The wind not only dominates the landscape but also begins to consume the relationship of husband and wife. The pressure of such a destructive element causes them to disagree and argue.
