A Cup of Tea was like that for me. Rosemary, like me, wants to live the kind of life only fictional characters really get to experience--where extraordinary things happen and conflicts are resolved.
Rosemary takes her home, feeds her, warms her. Maybe her intentions aim more towards personal purpose than selfless giving, but the act is still good.
Rosemary is living in a time where she can excel at literally everything, but her external beauty is what really matters.
Her character was really relatable to me. That plus the beautiful writing made me really enjoy this short story. Before reading I listened to the audio of the story from Youtube the link is posted in the ending of this review.
The tone of voice in the recording was quite ironical, even flippant, obviously, it was made for purpose because of the similarity of literary style of the story. That was a right method indeed, how else can we read this passage: Well, if you took her to pieces But why be so cruel as to take anyone to pieces?
The story tells us about one episode in the life of a very rich woman Rosemary Fell. She was used to spending money for any whims of hers. Katherine Mansfield described the scene how the shopkeeper flattered her taste of beauty: I would rather not part with them than sell them to someone who does not appreciate them, who has not that fine feeling which is so rare But what was the price?
For a moment the shopman did not seem to hear. Then a murmur reached her. She laid the little box down; she buttoned her gloves again. Even if one is rich The key moment of the story occurred when Rosemary went out of the shop and a young girl asked her some money for a cup of tea.
In response Rosemary acted unpredictably, she invited the girl to her home for a cup of tea. It is a satirical story written by one of the most well-known and recognizable Russian writers Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
The story told how one very high-level person, the general, decided to visit the wedding of one of his subordinate and how bad it turned: The true intention of the participating in the wedding for the boss was probably the attempt to increase his self-appraisal.
I think that Rosemary had the same motivation. After Rosemary brought the girl to her house, Philip, the husband of Rosemary, came home. He was very surprised, even shocked by the fact of seeing such an unusual visitor. Rosemary insisted that it is not her whim, that she would care about the future of that stranger - the young girl, who introduced herself as Ms.
But the attitude of Rosemary in terms of Ms. Smith was changed dramatically when Philip said that Ms. Rosemary went to her writing-room.
He answered, "I like you awfully". It cost twenty-eight guineas. May I have it? But that was not really what Rosemary wanted to say. The last question in the story raised doubts about self-confidence of Rosemary.Just announced!
