- 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.

Little Charity in Eudora Welty's A Visit of Charity

- Little Charity in Eudora Welty's A Visit of Charity        In the short story of "A Visit of Charity" by Eudora Welty, a fourteen-year-old girl visits two women in a home for the elderly to bring them a plant and to earn points for Campfire Girls.  Welty implies through this story, however, that neither the society that supports the home nor the girl, Marian, knows the meaning of the word "charity."  The dictionary defines "charity" as "the love of man for his fellow men: an act of good will or affection."  But instead of love, good will, and affection, self-interest, callousness, and dehumanization prevail in this story.  Welty's depiction of the setting and her portrayal of Marian dram...   [tags: Visit of Charity Essays]
