Everyday Use by Alice Walker written in 1944 narrates the story of black family composed of a Mother and her two daughters Maggie and Dee Dee is the oldest one A point that we can easily notice as the story is developed is that Maggie is extremely jealous of her sister She believes that her sister has a better life than she does The mother is the one that narrates the story she makes different descriptions about both girls The story has many examples to explain why Maggie believes that her sister has a better life As we read the story we can perceive that the idea of prejudice appears related to the fact that Maggie feels bad about her sister Maggie is extremely jealous of her sister she does not like the presence of Dee in her house As her mother says in the story Maggie will be nervous until her sister goeseying her sister with a mixture of envy and awe She believes that her sister gets everything she wants all she needs to do is ask somebody for what she wants She thinks that no is a word that the world never learned to say to her From her point of view Dee controls the world with her hands she can do whatever she wants Another example that exposes the reality of Maggie is that even her mother treats them differently Dee is the perfect girl while Maggie is just a normal person Her mother dreams with Dee even in her dreams she believes that Dee is perfect In her dream there are only three persons Herself Dee and the TV guy Sometime I dream a dream in which De and I are suddenly brought together on a TV program those were the words of her mother Maggies name was never mentioned in the dream The descriptions that the mother makes of Maggie and Dee are completely different
