Robertson Davies once wrote One learns ones mystery at the price of ones innocence In the story The Flowers the main character Myop is a young girl full of life who appreciates what the world provides her happiness She seeks new adventure and goes off on her own picking flowers Myop values everything in life but does not realize that the world is not perfect and fair Realizing the world is not always great thinking everything around is perfect and having curiosity all contributes to Myops loss of innocence in The FlowersRealizing the world is not always great in The Flowers contributes to the loss of innocence because the main character Myop thinks life is perfect and enjoys it all but she does not realize the struggles within She explores on her own picking flowers Very near where shed stepped into the head was a wild pink rose Walker 2 This quotation from the story is important because Myop is still picking flowers even after she stepped into a dead man and does not realize what has happened to him Also Myop begins to realize what happened after she finds an old noose around the wild pink rose she noticed a raised mound a ring around the roses root It was the rotted remains of a noose Walker 2 The author Alice Walker is trying to tell the readers that Myop is beginning to realize the worlds deepest sorrows Myop finds the remaining part of the noose spinning on the tree and figures out what has happened Then Myop realizes that the world is not always wonderful after figuring out what happened to the man Myop laid down her flowers Walker 2 This quotation is very important because this shows that Myop now knows that the world is not perfect because of the noose which represents the cruel racial violence and so she lays down her flowers as a sign of sympathy to the dead
