Inside, the walls were lined with shelves containing merchandise that was new while bins made from an assortment of cardboard boxes formed two isles that ran up and down the middle of the building.
In one of those bins, Oliver and Timmy were placing the day's crop of radishes. The little Knoll-Mice had placed a tag on each bunch of radishes saying what it was and that it came from their farm.

- An Analysis of Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway Somewhere within the narrative of Mrs. Dalloway, there seems to lie what could be understood as a restatement - or, perhaps, a working out of - the essentially simple, key theme or motif found in Woolf's famous feminist essay A Room of One's Own. Mrs. Dalloway does in fact possess "a room of her own - " and enjoys an income (or the use of an income) that is at least "five hundred a year - " (Room: 164). But most importantly, Clarissa Dalloway also deals with ways of working out female economic necessity, personal space, and the manifestation of an "artistic" self-conception.... [tags: Mrs Dalloway]

- The Failings of Mr. And Mrs. Elliot This cynical look at a less than ideal marriage keeps the reader at a distance. The opening sentence startles in its baldness "Mr. and Mrs. Elliot tried very hard to have a baby" and the second sentence destroys any illusions that the Elliots are enjoying this by stating that "They tried as often as Mrs. Elliot could stand it"(Hemingway 85). The second paragraph uses one long, oddly convoluted sentence to describe their courtship and subsequent marriage.... [tags: Mr. and Mrs. Elliot Essays]

- Finding Contentment in Mr. and Mrs. Elliot Ernest Hemingway's "Mr. and Mrs. Elliot" ultimately leaves us with a paradox. From its opening line, the story defines the marriage of Hubert and Cornelia as a marriage of failure: failure to conceive a child, failure to communicate, failure to have good sex. Indeed, the story's opening image seems the perfect metaphor for the marriage as a whole: "Mr. and Mrs. Elliot tried very hard to have a baby. They tried as often as Mrs. Elliot could stand it" (161).... [tags: Mr. and Mrs. Elliot Essays]
