Point of View in Eudora Welty’s A Visit of Charity

- Point of View in Eudora Welty’s A Visit of Charity      Every now and then point of view is worth writing about, because only every now and then is point of view actually seriously considered. In Eudora Welty’s “A Visit of Charity,” the third-person limited point of view of the little girl, Marian—her self-consciousness, descriptions, and fear—exactly portray what a little girl might experience in a nursing home.      To Marian, this is probably the first time in a nursing home.

I assert, however that legislating charity through the modern Welfare system as it appears in the United States is proper because the purpose of Welfare is not charity as such and it does not fall within the definition of charity as provided by Aquinas, and therefore it does not conflict with Aquinas’s view of charity in relationship to law as outlined in the Treatise on Law....   [tags: U.S. Government ]
