A Worn Path
[ send me this essay ]
5 pages in length. Discusses at length the short story "A Worn Path" by Eudora Welty. When we first meet Phoenix Jackson in "A Worn Path" we are immediately assailed with the knowledge that she is an ancient and extremely poor woman making her way through the pinewoods. With a red rag upon her head and a cane made from an umbrella, we suspect she is not a well-to-do person. Further evidence of this fact is revealed upon learning her apron is made of bleached sugar sacks. Although the story seems rather straightforward at first glance, with a little more insight we will see there is much to be revealed about Phoenix Jackson. Phoenix Jackson walks a worn path and overcomes obstacles and adversity to reach her goal. Bibliography lists 1 source.
