A newlywed couple has to deal with the tensions brought up by their new freedom and physical confidence after moving to an isolated country house.
The Bull is about a newly married couple who have moved to the country to start out on their own. There they have to react to the dynamics of the suddenly new relationship between them. The country appears to be a paradise, a verdant land with nothing to do except idly pick the pecans fallen from the trees and unpack their wedding gifts. They move around their house, yard, and the nearby field aware of their new freedom and power. They come to realize that the paradise of marriage was supposed to be more than this lustful discourse of their own power and they become uneasy, almost trapped, and they yearn for a paradise that still must be beyond. At the end they both realize what has to be swallowed in order to sustain their marriage: the past couple of days, their wrecking power, and their desire for something beyond what they have here, which is themselves.
