Analysis Of Museum Indians 'And Shadowness'

120 Words1 Page
When I read Museum Indians I thought that the metaphor most important to the text was “I am her shadow and witness” This quote from the story means that the author feels like her mother is the main part of anything the two do while she is in the background, hidden and unseen. The effect it has on the text is that the reader is now able to comprehend that throughout the whole story that she compares herself to her mother. The tone I receive as the reader, is disappointed and insignificant. This is because when she describes her mother it is all sunshine and lollipops but when she writes about herself it is like a gloomy day with rain.
