The Revolt of Mother Reviews
3.5 starsOne of the most impressive elements of this story is the character of Mother herself. Even though she has every reason to get really upset and throw a fit, she behaves with impressive integrity arguing her points with logic and respect. Her every action shows humility and strength. The plot itself is a little meh, but there is also an interesting look at the gender roles in their society. Worth a read.
There's always one or two stories/novels that I read for school a year/semester that I just don't like. This is one of them. I hate when people write in accent, my brain doesn't function that way.
i read this short story in my school library and at the end I laughed because I felt it was ridiculous and very unrealistic but then it was old time of America. I tried to picture a women in apron whose nature is selfless and her views 'archaic' (according to today's standard) and I realized it was beautiful. It somehow conveyed the feelings of immigrants. And the fact that it took them 40 years to finally understand what they wanted/felt is real. the phenomenon is there but the patience of the 'mother' ceased to exist. I don't think that kind of 'patience' is good but reading this story was cool. it sounded good on pages but the idea of selfless love and devotion while the other person is ignorant of your feeling, will always be discouraged by me. Everything aside, the author deserves these 4.5 stars for scribbling the natural essence of then Americans.
After forty years of marriage, Sarah Penn learns that her husband is building a second barn on the spot where long ago he had promised to put their new house. She takes matters into her own hands.New England humor.
