In Search of Our Mothers' Gardens: Sainthood

- In Search of Our Mothers' Gardens: Sainthood To use the name of a Saint generally evokes images of holy men and women of the Catholic church, dressed in flowing robes and surrounded by an oil-painted aura. There are patron saints-those with a sort of specialized divinity-of bakers and bellmakers, orphans and pawnbrokers, soldiers and snake bites, soldiers and writers.

Meaningless Existence in Virginia Woolf's Kew Gardens

- Meaningless Existence in Virginia Woolf's Kew Gardens "Kew Gardens," by Virginia Woolf, is skillfully developed and written in such a manner as to be jammed full of images, ideas, and possibilities.
