Description

ENG 125 Week 3 Final Paper Rough Draft,

The short stories A Worn Path by Eudora Welty and Used to Live Here Once by Jean Rhys both carry the theme, symbolism of a journey.  In both writings the authors used people, places and things to symbolize something extra, expanding the stories into more than just what is read.  I chose these stories because they both consist of strong symbolic references to life.  Each story was written in a third-person point of view and consisted of a journey made by the main characters, which in both cases happened to be a black woman.  Although in one story the character was already dead and in the other, fighting death, there are many similarities between the stories told.

In A Worn Path, Phoenix Jackson is an elderly woman that encroaches on what appears to be a physically demanding trek through the forest.  Already, the symbolism begins with the name of the woman.  A phoenix is a mythical Egyptian bird symbolizing immortality and resurrection that rises from its own ashes and creates another phoenix (N. Isaacs, 1963), away, the reader is made aware that Phoenix’s character is a fighter.  It becomes more apparent throughout the story.  Symbolizing the perseverance of life.
