Rudy Yurkovich Who Said What Means Ask yourselves these questions before you read Kincaids Girl Do you know what a housewife is being a student or child getting advice from an elder and being called something that you are not What is this storys about is it a story at all or just a poem in essay form What kind of mood are you in right now to decipher this story in your own words The story depends on the mood you are in and change the whole perception of this story Then again isnt that what writing is about to begin with Interpret the story as Mr Hass told us to do I did but I analyzed it as a poem looking for an underlying meaning There had to be much more than what there than what was told to us I had a totally different perception After the discussion it seemed relevant for me to understand the story in a different way But I thought it was a mother to daughter talk The daughter talk my interpretation of the narration was commands that her mom was saying The advice told to her was not to become a slut which was repeated several times in this story But the question I ask you is this present situation in the girls life or was it a recollection of one that she had before with her mother Is this story taking place in present time or in the past It could be in the present with a young girl but I also came to the conclusion that this could be in the past and the italicized words could keep repeating in her mothers forgotten speech Now is when she needs her mothers comfort and not only that what she wished at the time of the talk In the other perspective though it could be in the present time and just be recalled by the narrator
