119 Words1 Page

In the story “Everyday Use” I find Maggie to be the most sympathetic. Maggie’s older sister, Dee, makes Maggie feel inferior to her. Maggie has burn scars and marks on her body, that makes her feel like she doesn’t look good. Dee always receive what she want and Dee is also smart. While Maggie isn’t so smart and doesn’t have the money or style to get what she wants. Alice Walker might find Dee most sympathetic. Alice relate to Dee more than she relates to Maggie. Alice knows what Dee went through to get where she’s at. Both Alice and Dee came from poor families trying to make it. Both went to college and made something out of themselves.
