What Does The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button Mean

Decent Essays
“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, by Francis Scott Fitzgerald, is a short story about the life of a man who ages backwards. The story covers the highs, lows, and interworking’s of his life. The author tackled the subject of life and death in a unique way. I feel the author wanted us to consider our lives as a gift. Aging is almost universally seen as a negative, past the age of thirty, sometimes before. The author uses this unique story as a way to show that aging is not only a way to bring you closer to death, but as a way to experience life. Every year that you age, another year of knowledge, experiences, and skills is added to your mental library. Another year of emotion, triumph, and defeat as a constant reminder of the years you lived.
