Example text

When asked by F. Jasmine to specify the problems with outfit, Berenice points out the protagonist’s crew cut and dirty elbows, which are incongruous with the adult evening dress. John Henry interrupts the discussion about F. Jasmine’s clothes, stating, “Uncle Charles is dead.... And we are going to the wedding” (The Member of the Wedding 75). This observation causes F. Jasmine to shiver and think back to the other seven people she knew. Her mother had died the very day that she was born, so she could not count her....

Thus, the story of the cards provides another lens through which to consider the wedding, and this reading illustrates the extent to which Frances is unable to understand the adult relationships and marital dynamics. ” Those in attendance treat her like a child—for example, Mrs. Williams, one of the wedding guests, repeatedly asks Frances what grade she is in, and another guest urges her to go outside and play on the swing set. Both moments signals to the protagonist that she is viewed not as an adult but as a child.

She walks to John Henry’s place and tells him that she doesn’t want to return home alone. In the midst of their conversation, the narrative shifts from a dialogue to an interior monologue, and Frankie’s thoughts are the focal points of this section. Frankie thinks about her brother and his fiancé, and then comes to the conclusion that “they are the we of me” (The Member of the Wedding 35). It is this conclusion that both ends Part One and promulgates the action in Part Two of The Member of the Wedding.
