article



Susan Farrell. "Fight vs. Flight: A Re-evaluation of Dee in Alice Walker's "Everyday Use"." Studies in Short Fiction 35.2 (1998): 179-186. print.

"Several readers have pointed out that Mama's view of Maggie is not quite accurate - that Maggie is not as passive or as "hangdog" as she appears. "

"The mood at the story's beginning is one of ritualistic waiting'" of preparation "for the arrival of a goddess" (715). Thus, Dee seems to attain almost mythic stature in Mama's imagination as she and Maggie wait for the as-yet unnamed "her" to appear. "

"Dee inspires Mama in a type of awe and fear more suitable to the advent of a goddess than the love one might expect a mother to feel for a returning daughter. "

"Once it is fashionable to have rural, poverty-stricken roots, Dee wants a record of her own humble beginnings. "
