What is Behrman’s reaction when Sue tells him Johnsy’s thoughts about the leaf and her death? Why does he react in this manner? How do his feelings change and why do you think they change?
His reaction is very overprotective because he thinks of Johnsy as his own daughter and does not want her to feel like she is relying on a leaf to live. He thinks her relating to the leaf is ridiculous and wants her to have faith to live.
