This short story was written in the 2007 by David FosterWallace. Good People has as purpose to tell a story that is very common in adolescents and young adults, during this new century: pregnancy.

David Foster Wallace wants to give a dark atmosphere.  Thiscan be seen when theauthor uses metaphors related to the setting. Such as "The angle of the sun made the water of the shallows look dark.” Thisdescription creates a mental image of darkness and cold. This corroborates the situation that the characters are living.
Lane A. Dane demonstrates a degree ofconfusion throughout history.  Shows that it is a very religious person, but at the time to be facing a serious problem, his faith can swing dangerously.
