O’Connor’s depiction of the wooden leg in the story is a mild comparison to the amputation of her very soul threatened by imminent death relating to Lupus. To O’Connor her life became ugly and she voiced this matter of fact to Langkjaer in her comments about a self portrait that she had painted that was not flattering or attractive.
