Katherine Anne Porter's short story "The Grave" is a poignant and thought-provoking exploration of the complex relationship between a mother and her son. The story is narrated by the mother, who reflects on the tumultuous relationship she had with her son throughout his life, and ultimately, the profound sense of loss and regret she feels after his untimely death.

At the heart of "The Grave" is the theme of maternal love and its complexities. The mother's love for her son is deep and unwavering, but it is also laced with resentment and anger. She resents her son for the way he constantly challenges and defies her authority, and for the way he seems to take her love for granted. She is also angry with herself for the mistakes she made as a mother, and for the ways in which she let her own pride and ego get in the way of her relationship with her son.

As the mother reflects on her son's life and death, she is forced to confront the harsh realities of their relationship and the ways in which she may have contributed to his struggles. She realizes that, in her efforts to protect and guide her son, she may have suffocated him and denied him the freedom and autonomy he needed to grow and thrive. She also admits to feeling a sense of guilt and shame for not being able to save her son from the dark path he ultimately chose.

Despite the mother's remorse and regret, "The Grave" ultimately offers a message of hope and redemption. Through the process of reflection and self-examination, the mother comes to a deeper understanding of her son's struggles and the ways in which she may have contributed to them. In doing so, she is able to find a sense of closure and peace, and to honor and celebrate the memory of her son in a way that is both honest and loving.

In conclusion, Katherine Anne Porter's "The Grave" is a powerful and poignant exploration of the complex and often fraught relationship between a mother and her son. Through its portrayal of love, loss, and redemption, the story offers a poignant and thought-provoking meditation on the enduring bonds of family and the ways in which we are shaped by the relationships we have with the people we love.

The siblings are exploring a small empty grave yard that had held the bodies of their family. Even in the context of the story, the dove acts as a Christian symbol of rebirth, for that is why it is used to decorate the coffins of the dead. It has a nice message about maturing and dealing with loss and understanding the world around us. Without spoiling much, I think it's a powerful coming of age story crammed into four pages. بچه رو از شکم مادرش جدا میکنه و میراندا شگفت زده میشه. I found this story to be quite interesting and dark.

By exploring it through the eyes of a young girl named Miranda. She left home at the age of sixteen to marry the first of three husbands. The imagery used in this story was breathtaking. And that is how the story begins, with an explanation of Grandma and her corpse-hoarding mannerisms. The thing I liked the most about it is the turmoil within the main character and her recognition of how learning about death is necessary for her life. Not all of them of course, but a huge number nevertheless. Soon he found a golden ring that Miranda wanted very much.

وقتی به برادرش میرسه، یک خرگوش می بیین. She is startled by the sudden remembrance of the dead rabbits and is briefly frightened by her recollection. The Grave In this second part, Miranda is playing with her brother. Her mother died when she was two, and her family went to live with her paternal grandmother, whose name Porter would eventually adapt as her professional name. Miranda, unnerved by the incident, never tells a soul. Both decide they do not want to keep any of them so Paul puts them all away. لباسای میراندا همه حالت پسرونه داره و همیشه حرف پدرش رو که اینجور لباس ها واسه کار کردن سر زمین خوبه رو گوش داده ولی الان تصمیم میگیره بعد از شکار بره خونه و حموم کنه و لباسای خوبی بپوشه و دخترونه.

Miranda and her brother are just kids who were exploring a cemetery that once belonged to their family. Especially in the south and on account of the Americans love for their second amendment and their guns. We didn't kill anything together but they taught me things I shouldn't have know at that age. Miranda eventually forgets the rabbits entirely, and does not remember them for nearly twenty years. به پُل میگه که اون خز رو دیگه نمیخواد و پُل بچه های خرگوش رو دوباره توی شکم خرگوش میزاره و اون رو لای بوته ها پنهان میکنه.

I read this story for my English class. Miranda likes the gold ring. I would recommend this book! The story takes place in the early 1900's in the south. She lives on the farm of her grandmother, now dead, with her father, Harry, her brother, Paul, and her older sister, Maria. Then nine years old, she and her twelve-year-old brother, Paul, pass through the cemetery on their way to go hunting; they set down their rifles and climb the fence to explore the now-empty graves. She wasn't very observant of the world around her and didn't understand the significance of that moment.

In the graveyard of one's soul are treasures waiting to be found. The Fig Tree In this first part, the family is getting ready to leave for another property. He told his sister that she had better not tell anyone of this or their would be bad trouble. I had never read Katherine Anne Porter and I'm favorably impressed with the story telling. برادرش میگه اولین کبوتر و یا خرگوشی که دیدن رو اون شکار میکنه و میراندا هم میگه اولین ماری که دیدیم رو من شکار میکنم! Characters Miranda Miranda is the main character in the story; through most of it, she is nine years old, but the story concludes with the adult Miranda, perhaps nearing thirty, reflecting on her memories. She left home at the age of sixteen to marry the first of three husbands. I think it was very well written and an easy read, I like it enough to keep it my own library.

The kids were out hunting small game when they came upon the empty graves. He takes Miranda hunting with him reluctantly and instructs her on how to handle her gun, although she listens poorly and displays little interest. I really enjoyed this story. Seeing a tray of sugar sweets shaped like baby birds and rabbits—animals she and Paul hunted that day—the full force of that incident immediately returns, making her temporarily immobile. تقریبا داره بدون این که پُل رو ببینه برمیگرده که یک دفه تصمیم میگیره بره و به برادرش خبر بده که داره میره خونه.

I personally really enjoyed this story because the era that it is written about really interest me. She buried deep into her brain until she had no memory of it until 20 years later while walking home it resurfaced out of nowhere leaving her completely horrified. هرچی بهش فکر میکنه بیشتر دچار مشکل میشه. Many things in my life I didn't understand what they mean to me until I got older. و با هم دیگه اینا رو عوض میکنن.
