Title of Piece: The Wife’s Story
Author’s Name: Ursula K. Leguin
In my opinion this story confused me a lot. Only because while i was reading it, i thought i understood it, but as i got close to the end the story started to lose me a bit. Plot: This story is about a wife telling a story about how she met her husband. At first that’s what it looks like. Like she explains how she met him in the first person and it’s like something nice and sweet and she quotes from her sister so the reader can have a clear understanding of what’s going on. With the Dialogue: from the When she was talking to her husband and she stated ”What is that — those smells on you? All over you!” And he said, “I don’t know,” and what i interpreted from this is that the husband probably cheated on her, or the smell of an animal he killed. Did you mean to confuse the reader as they read along? Character: the youngest child that was scared to be near because of the scent that was on him.
