If France had not been quite as early on the neo-Gothic scene, she produced a giant of the revival in Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. A powerful and influential theorist, Viollet-le-Duc was a leading architect whose genius lay in restoration. He believed in restoring buildings to a state of completion that they would not have known even when they were first built, and he followed this principle in his restorations of the walled city of Carcassonne and Notre-Dame and Sainte Chapelle in Paris . In this respect he differed from his English counterpart Ruskin as he often replaced the work of medieval stonemasons. His rational approach to Gothic was in stark contrast to the revival’s romanticist origins, and is considered by some to have been a prelude to the structural honesty demanded by Modernism .
There are a few other occasions in whereby Carer uses a verb to indicate tone of voice. When the wife says ‘Just get your things and get out’ when her partner/husband is packing his suitcase. Also the man says ‘I want the baby’ and the wife answers ‘You’re not touching this baby.’ Later while both parents are in the kitchen the husband says ‘Let go of him (the baby)’. Near the end of the story the wife also screams – ‘No! she screamed just as her hands came loose.’
