Portefolio Assignment 2


The short story The Blanket is an original mix between reality and fiction. In fact, it deals with a very dangerous and harmful phenomenon which is spousal abuse. It depicts, by giving many details, how a man can terrify his wife by beating her, and by making her a kind of slave. He has all the power on her, and she is really suffering from his moral and physical threats. As far as I’m concerned I think that it is very genius to give a “happy” fictional end to this taboo subject. That shows that even if you are suffering from a real problem in your life, there is always a place for dreams. But on the other side, how if these wolves were only imagined by Mari Jo? Maybe her sufferance reaches the top and she starts leaving in a fictional world. It is up to everybody to interpret the end of the story the way he wants…
