For this assignment I decided that I would just write a brief overview of one of the stories in Edwidge Danticats book Krik Krak The story that I have chosen to talk about is Between the Pool and the Gardenias I choose this one to discuss because I thought the circumstance between the lady and the child was very weird and intrigued me to look into it more in depth So I am going to talk about the series of events in this story and my thoughts on the young women in the story I am mainly going to focus on questions 2 and 3 in the study questions for Chapter 5 of Edwindge Danticats book Krik KrakIn this story I believe that the main reason that she takes the child is because she is lonely and wants to become close to someone She also has had a couple miscarriages before and this has affected her greatly and caused her much suffering and mourning over the years When she took in the child this made her dream about all of the thoughts and emotions that would have taken place if she had been able to conceive her children She had been missing out of all the parts of parenthood that came with having a child and this baby that she picks up makes her feel more whole inside The baby makes her life on this planet feel like she has a purpose for a short while and that is why she takes the baby into her house as one of her ownNow maybe this wouldnt be considered crazy everywhere but what if the baby was already dead and you tried to do this then you would probably get taken into an insane asylum This is the main reason why I believe that she is crazy because you usually dont see women picking up dead babies off the road and taking them home to care for
