    Baited and Lured Aristophanes said, “Hunger knows no friend but its feeder” (BrainyQuote). In “Saint Marie (1934): Marie Lazarre,” from the novel Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich, begins with Marie Lazarre following the Nuns up the hill to the Sacred Heart Convent where she will become a protégé, not for the intentions of salvation, but to prevent Sister Leopolda from getting into heaven. In this story brimmed with layers of irony, Erdrich uses fishing and baiting imagery to demonstrate the ambition and hunger within Marie in her goal to rise above Sister Leopolda. Erdrich provides instances in which fishing and/or baiting is used to relate to the theme of religion, Marie’s ambitions, and the relationship between Marie and the Nuns, especially concerning Sister Leopolda. Religion is crucial to keep in mind when approaching this story. It is deeply rooted into the framework and, though not out of the intentions to be saved, but to have Sister Leopolda kneeling before her, is the primary focus of Marie’s time spent with the Sacred Heart Convent. The beginning line “when I went there, I knew the dark fish must rise,” was the first use of this imagery (Erdrich, 823). Although this metaphor is unclear as to whether fish is plural or singular, it can be seen as foreshadow into Marie’s ascent into saint-hood and her rise above the Sisters of the Convent. Marie is the bait. The sisters are the dark fish that are rising up to take the bait. As the story progress, it is learned that…

    in my power, I find the will to lift a slate off either roof has vanished! My old enemies have not beaten me; now would be the precise time to revenge myself on their representatives...But where is the use? I don’t care for striking: I can’t tkae the trouble to raise my hand!” (303).
