One of the most profoundly moving scenes in “House” is Thien’s depiction of two young girls waiting outside their former home on their mother’s birthday, hoping that she will return to them. The two unwanted children sit all day in the late summer heat on a patch of dead grass, between the sidewalk and curb, property that Kathleen tells Lorraine does not belong to anyone. This scene illustrates the profound and enduring pain inflicted on the girls by their mother. In “Alchemy,” Miriam seems to react to Paula’s disappearance without much feeling. Miriam walks by Paula’s house and “stood on the sidewalk out front hoping that wherever Paula was, they would never find her and make her go back again” (73).
Imagine a woman who could never see herself as she was seen in the eyes of her loved one” (11).

He fails to look beyond the surface and thinks that being able to see is everything. This is why he doesn’t know his wife as well as he should. The narrator’s wife always made tapes about events going on in her life and sent them to the blind man who always listened and sent a tape back.

The family never visibly mourns for the death of Laura’s mother, in fact, they seem to openly mock Laura for trying to mourn her mother’s death.

The Salem Press illustrates Eudora Welty’s setting and family Delta Wedding. Eudora Welty has created the Fairchild family in a southern plantation society that is separate and unique from all of the rest, they are not affected by grief and suffering, there are no racial tensions or poverty.
