106 Words1 Page
The Worn Path, by Eudora Welty is (a/ another) example of a modernistic narrative during the modern era. The short story shows the life of an old women named Phoenix, who goes on a long journey to town to get medicine for her sick grandchild. This story shows great meaninglessness of life because Phoenix is a very old lady who has to take care of her grandchild, when someone should be taking care of her. In turn the story shows much uncertainty and bewilderment because Phoenix forgets why she made her journey to town leaving much questions to whether or not her grandchild is actually alive.
