This theme of identity also applies to her husband, John Andros. The author mentions this at the beginning of the story, "when John Andros feels old, he finds solace in the thought of life continuing through his child." The couple focuses too much on their need to have Ede being superior. This is the main cause of their big argument with the Markey's family, which also result a pointless fight between John Andros and Joe Markey.These stories are similar, yet they do have some differences. Both authors want to get across the same idea, but use different ways. Chen Rong in "Regarding the Problem of Newborn Piglets in Winter" uses seven different levels of people in different social classes to convey the message out. Those troubles are dramatically created by the redundancy of the communications. F. Scott Fitzgerald, on the other hand, in "The Baby Party" mainly expresses his view through the two families, the Andros and the Markey. The author adds in the "much ado" through the big arguments and the pointless fight.Although these two stories are constructed in different ways, they both let the readers finish with a sense of agreement that all the things the characters have done or all the troubles they have experienced are meaningless.
