PARTICIPATION #6–Great Depression


The Great Depression was the worst economic downturn in the history of the industrialized world. In the United States, the beginning of the economic crisis was marked by the stock market crash of October 1929 and continued through the nation’s transition to a wartime economy in the build-up to America’s participation in the Second World War. In the initial years of the depression, consumer spending and investment dropped, causing steep declines in industrial output and employment as failing companies laid-off workers. By 1933, when the Great Depression reached its lowest point, the American economy had shrunk by one-third, industrial production had decreased nearly 50%, farm income had declined by 56% (over a million farmers had lost their homes), 40% of the country’s banks had failed (nine million savings accounts had been wiped out), real wages fell 60%, and 13 million Americans (25.2% of the workforce) were unemployed.

short response essays

Alice Walker is credited with bringing the work of Zora Neale Hurston back into the public eye after years of obscurity. Walker is a poet, essayist, and fiction writer whose most well-known work is the novel The Color Purple, which won the Pulitzer Prize. In the story “Everyday Use” Walker considers the subject of cultural heritage from multiple perspectives by focusing on material objects which hold symbolic value.

In a literary work, a symbol generally stands for something beyond itself. The symbol may be an object; it may be a place; it may be a character; it may be an action. Exactly what the symbol stands for is often open to interpretation by the reader.

In “Everyday Use” it is clear that a family’s old quilts have symbolic meaning. What is not so clear is what they symbolize (in this story overall) and what meaning(s) they hold for individual characters.

In a paragraph of about 200 words:

  • Analyze the symbolic meanings of the quilts in this story.
  • Support your analysis with at least two brief direct quotations (include page # in parenthesis).
  • Be sure to identify who is speaking:
  • Is the speaker the narrator (and who is the narrator)?
  • Is the speaker a character (use proper names)?
