The Remains of the day The Remains of the day is a story narrated by Stevens a faltering English butler In my opinion this book was very interesting book It also shows me how in many different countries how they may have some similarities for example in Haiti we have butler and maid that is in the high class Their duties were the same as Stevens to help around the house and make sure everything is running smoothly the only difference is that the maid really was in charge of everything In the book in page 164 165 Stevens also describes how he never allowed a housekeeper to enter his pantry all day as far as he was concerned a butlers pantry is a crucial office In Haiti its also hard for you to see a maid enter a butler pantry unless they have some kind of relationship going on I taught that Stevens was in love with Miss Kenton or I should say Miss Benn but Stevens was so caught up with serving with his employer to the best of his ability and as we get to know him we realize that this was his only goal He allowed to it to blind him to all of the other promises of life Another scenario that may also come in handy is the scene where his father is dying and at that time where Lord Darlington Hall was having an important dinner where he had to assist he went to his fathers pantry and then had to resume to work where his father passed away and he wasnt present but the only thing he was able to say is that hes father would have been proud of him because he was attending of his duties One last thing Stevens at the beginning of the book also outline what he thinks dignity is Dignity had to do crucially with a butlers ability
