  • What Do You Know About The Mother Of The Story Analysis

    1. What do you know about the mother of the story? Mama is the narrator of the story who is a rather large lady who works very hard to support her family. She is brutally honest of both her daughters, Dee and Maggie. She also seems resentful of Dee’s education since she fantasizes about them reuniting with her on a television show where Dee is very appreciative of her. 2. When we have a first-person narrator, we have to decide if she is reliable or unreliable. Do you trust this narrator? Why or why not? I trust the narrator because she tells the story from her point of view and how she viewed things that she has experienced in her life. No other person can capture or tell a story for another person for they did not truly experienced their life for them. 3. What assumptions does the narrator have about her daughters? Do you agree? Why? Maggie who was severely burned as a child is very shy and is insecure about her appearances. Maggie is jealous of her sister Dee because she thinks Dee has been given an easy life. Dee who is the oldest sister is more confident and believes she is better than the living in which she endured. Mama takes this as Dee is rejecting her origin and her heritage. I agree with Mama because throughout the story Dee shows that she is ungrateful, but I also think that mother is overprotective of Maggie. Maggie can be much stronger if she wants to and can speak her mind, but I believe that the mother shelters her too much to where Maggie never had a…

  • Lorrie Moore's People Like That Are The Only People Here

    As Lorrie Moore said in Why we read (and write) short stories, “we tell stories to find out what we believe”. Lorrie Moore’s People Like That are the Only People Here has an interesting analysis of the hospital setting. I find it particularly interesting how she uses the symbol of machines to talk about the people in the hospital and the process of being a parent of a child in the Peed Onk ward. Moore gives us the image of the hospital and the Mother’s experience in the hospital as a…
