A Sorrowful Woman by Carly Hammond on Prezi
It doesn’t appear that she even loves her child. Feminist or not, but love for your children is as natural as the world itself, esp when the kid is still so young.
You can change your feelings for you sorfowful later, when they grow up and become adult and as with other Couldn’t connect with the protagonist, really. You can change your feelings for you kids later, when they grow up and become adult and as with other adults, there could be conflicts, but a three-year old?? She hits him bc he accidentally scratched her? This woman dies from her depression and dissatisfaction, that’s a little ridiculous, if you ask me.
It appears she actually died, not killed herself, not sure I understand. If she wanted to do something outside of the family, she should’ve talked to her husband, I am sure he would’ve been ok with it.
Clearly, he made enough money to support her hobby and was understanding of her. She could’ve even gotten a part time job if she felt gaul trapped at home.
Maybe that would’ve fulfilled her.
A Sorrowful Woman by Gail Godwin
It appears the action takes place in the 20th century, it’s not like centuries ago when women were under lock and key in their homes. Anyway, no more than one star. Sep 11, Grace rated it it was amazing Shelves: Very upsetting to read, but as someone who has suffered from mental illnesses, I could relate.
I found it rude that she fired “the girl” because she actually brought some life to the house. There’s definitely some significance to the fact the characters did not all get names, but when you have depression, nothing is really significant to you anymore.
Very poetic soerowful beautiful.
