Likewise, it is revealed that this journey is routine through the line “There was a fixed and ceremonial stiffness over her body.” The word ceremonial shows that this is not new to Phoenix and she does this often without even knowing why. The hospital is where the reader can truly see Phoenix is very unreliable. The nurse says “She makes these trips just as regular as clockwork” in reference to Phoenix. With the faulty memory of Phoenix and and the attitude from the nurses, the reader can infer that Phoenix’s grandson may not be alive, or if he was sick he is probably better by now, making her journey a routine as a result of her mental deterioration. The physical complications of the path help enhance the feeling of uncertainty and turmoil Phoenix feels when traveling the path and thinking about her grandson.
People later realize that Hester has changed and become a wonderful woman who loves to help. The citizens do not even recognize the letter as its old significance, which is adulterer. Even the people who do not know Hester think that the letter on her breast symbolizes importance. In the article, Symbols: The Scarlet Letter, “...the Native Americans who come to watch the Election day pageant thank it marks her as a person of importance and status” (Sparknotes).

According to the story “I in the thorn bush”, finally she stood free and after the moment dared to stoop for her cane”. That just shows how determined she is because most people would never walk as far as she did to get that medicine. Most people would just turn around once they encounter a hard situation. Just like the author intended “Worn Path” to be an allegory, and she's used the path that Phoenix takes to be a metaphor of “life is a journey, just like in life you see the path that is easy, and one that is hard”. Phoenix takes the harder path every day because if not her grandson might “die” which shows her determination by not taking the easy way out of things are choosing the “hard path to
She has a stronger stomach and a different mindset than a majority of other women. For instance, in the text, it states: “Other mothers would have fainted at the sight of a bucket of blood; the bravest might have shuddered and passed by, but not this one!”(532). Basically, the author is saying that this mother had determination and was not easily grossed out by blood or odd species. The reader can interpret this to mean that the mother in this story is a brave woman who does not fit into the social norm.This is something that many readers find pleasing. To illustrate this theme the author describes that: “She had driven through a forest fire, gone boating in a hurricane, swum across riptides”(532).
While many people would have given up within the first week or so of their hardships of being alone in such a large, unforgiving city, Doris keeps her head held high.

Ellen Toliver changed a lot throughout the book from beginning of the book to the end.One example was that in the beginning of the Ellen wants to be invisible.

She constantly seeks reassurance and acceptance of her two navels. Yet she understands how most people find this idea unnatural and repulsive, attempting to arrange for an operation to get one of her navels removed, but stops, realizing that living in her illusion provided her with more “safety and happiness” than what living in reality did. She initially resolves to permanently live in her illusions: in the context of escaping reality and the troubles that come with it, Connie continues to evade the problems that chase her (her mother Concha and her husband Macho). It is worth noting though, that Connie succeeds in escaping her problems, as in the time span of the novel, Connie never physically meets Concha or Macho, the two major sources of her problems. This then corroborates Connie’s idea of escaping reality as an effective solution (at face value) to dealing with her
Phoenix is addressed as “Granny” or “Grandma” and Jimenez, 1 never Phoenix or Ms. Jackson, which suggests she was not highly respected and was treated like a “charity case.” The author illustrates this when Phoenix arrives at the clinic and is greeted by the attendant which rudely states, “A charity case, I suppose.” This is discrimination because the attendant is assuming phoenix is poor based off of physical appearance. The emotions the author has given Phoenix are believable because they match the plot of the story. Phoenix is determined to help her grandson because she loves him very much. An example of this is shown when Phoenix describes her grandson’s condition to the nurse by stating, “No missy, he not dead, he just the same. Every little while his throat begin to close up again and he not able to swallow.

“She was a strong woman, logical, practical and very independent, and to watch the slow onset of dementia rob her about her independence was heart breaking. I loved having chats with mum about anything and everything, letting off steam to her and telling her of what my kids and grandkids were up to. In the last couple of years, she did not always remember family. I would tell her all that was going on, with family and my life, but it was not the same, not having the interaction with her. The worst thing was not being able to do anything to help ease her suffering.” Recalls
The organization was originally created during a time both birth control and abortion were illegal, so its presence was villainized from the get go. The group was continuously shut down, but since its conception illegal and backroom abortion rates dropped.
