The passage reveals that she accepts this fact, and decides to live the submissive role. 2. “No, dearest Georgiana…” This passage has been taken from Natalie Georgiana’s “The Birthmark”. This passage tells about Aylmer’s discontentment with the little birthmark that Georgiana had on her cheek. He believed that his wife’s beauty was imperfect due to that birthmark. This passage points out the discontentment of man, and also the imperfection of human beings. The perfect beauty of Georgiana’s was made imperfect by way of the birthmark, which implies that only God is perfect, and human beings can never become perfect. This passage also reveals that man is very thankless toward the blessings of God. No matter how much God blesses man with, he is always complaining and looking for faults instead of appreciating positive things. 3. “Live with your head…” This passage is from Ralph Ellison’s “Battle Royal”. This passage is very significant as it portrays a very important theme: compliance. The grandfather is advising his grandson that the only way he can survive in the white-dominated society is compliance. He should never show open rebellion against the discrimination. He should pretend to be okay with the demeaning racism he would be experiencing in the future life, and should sit back and see what happens. However, the advice of the old man is based upon self-denial. The narrator wishes to be true to his self throughout, but the words of his grandfather echo in his mind and teach him treachery. 4. “She saw the man’s face…”. This passage has been taken from Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man Is Hard to Find”. This passage contains the redemption and epiphany the grandmother shows for the first time in the whole story, and this is what makes this passage so significant. She used to live in her own world of selfishness and indifference, where she is not ready to consider the importance and views of others around her. But she comes to realize this just before she is going to die. Her head gets cleared for a moment, and she understands the Misfit and his inner person. But it is too late. In short, the passage is about sudden self-realization of one’s self-centeredness. Part II- Essay Questions Q. 1: Symbol in “The Hand” Colette has not only described the spiritual dominance of the husband in the short story “The Hand”, but has also described how physically dominant was he, by giving special focus on his hands. Hand depicts power, control, masculinity, and aggression. “…powerful knuckles and the veins engorged by the pressure on his arm” (Colette, qtd. in Meyer 241) shows how powerful the hands of the husband are, which basically portrays the height of male dominance. The powerful hands, the hair on the arms, and the wife’s feeling of lying with an animal, all shows the animal-like fierceness and ruthless dominance exhibited by the husband. She thinks of the hands as “apelike”, and calls them “claws”, which strengthens the symbolic meaning of hand. At one point, the wife describes hand as “offended, reared back and tensed up in the shape of a crab and waited, ready for battle” (Colette, qtd. in Meyer 242), which again depicts the animal like ferocity and domination. The man can make his hand defensive when the wife feels disgusted. This shows the level of prowess and cleverness the
