  •                    "A Worn Path"          Eudora Welty-/1901-2001     Born in Jackson Mississippi          writing captures life in the                         deep south Trania Price  6th period 12/7/18
  • Phoenix Jackson - Is the protagonist of the she is described in vivid colors, suggesting her lively nature: she wears a red rag in her hair and her skin is described as “yellow,” “golden” and “copper.”
  • In "A Worn Path," Welty introduces Phoenix Jackson, an old woman who is traveling on a long journey by foot. The month is December, and the story is set in the Deep South. She is very alone as she travels.
  • The main conflict in "The Worn Path" was the long,dangerous journey made by Phoenix, an old woman faced with the challenge of taking care of her sick grandson.Her grandchild swallowed lye and required medication that was in a distant town.Phoenix was forced to make the long dangerous trip to get the medication.
  • Phoenix ends the story and begins her return with the same sense of solemnity and ceremony that she held throughout her journey into town. Each movement of her exit is recorded—"she lifted her free hand, gave a little nod, turned around, and walked out of the doctor's office"—demonstrating her careful attention, commitment to, and belief in her journey despite what others think.
  • The mood and tone of the story is respectful and purposeful. My personal reaction of the story is I felt like she wasn't safe walking to the town because she was in the deep South and she's black. I liked it because she wasn't harmed at the end.
