Discuss who is the savior in Christine Johnson’s short story ‘The Visitor’

Spruce, is the savior in this the “visitor”. Graham believed in solving problems amicably rather than running away from the town’s issues. The moose caused problems for everyone in the town, destroying plants, dirtying the environment, and eating people’s crops in the fields (Corcos 2017). The whole area was on the verge of killing Spruce when the mayor summoned the people for a meeting, with the help of Graham. Spruce represents therefore, both the misfortunes of the town and the solution needed to change the hopeless situation. Saving Copelin town incorporated the establishment of the citizen coalition for Copelin (CCC) law as well as giving moose its freedom in the town. The mayor unleashed programs of restructuring and reconstructing the town’s streets and infrastructure in general (Rudisel 2015). Thus, Spruce, the moose, acts as the savior of the little town of Copelin which experienced many problems due to the high rates of corruption and negligence.
