    Robert had pursued a system of lessons almost daily; and he was nearly at the point of discouragement in realizing the futility of his efforts. How peaceful it is down here, rooted in the centre of the world and gazing up through the grey waters, with their sudden gleams of light, and their reflections—if it were not for Whitaker's Almanack—if it were not for the Table of Precedency!

She was keeping up her music on account of the children, she said; because she and her husband both considered it a means of brightening the home and making it attractive.

    It was a fixed belief with Madame Lebrun that the conduct of the universe and all things pertaining thereto would have been manifestly of a more intelligent and higher order had not Monsieur Lebrun been removed to other spheres during the early years of their married life. Madame Ratignolle begged Robert to accompany her to the house; she complained of cramp in her limbs and stiffness of the joints. The story explores many themes. There was a settling down, and a prevailing air of expectancy everywhere. Lu Xun acknowledged the negative impact of beliefs about traditional Chinese medicine on his own life.

Pontellier talked a little about herself for the same reason. She read a letter from her sister, who was away in the East, and who had engaged herself to be married. He wasn't wearing his long gown, either. With no way of making a living, he grew poorer and poorer, until he was practically reduced to beggary.

Lu Xun suggests that "getting a hearing" is like a dream; the reality is that the powers-that-be settle things in the usual manner. The light fell either upon the smooth, grey back of a pebble, or, the shell of a snail with its brown, circular veins, or falling into a raindrop, it expanded with such intensity of red, blue and yellow the thin walls of water that one expected them to burst and disappear.

I could see only the stretch of green before me, and I felt as if I must walk on forever, without coming to the end of it. The quadroon nurse was looked upon as a huge encumbrance, only good to button up waists and panties and to brush and part hair; since it seemed to be a law of society that hair must be parted and brushed.

I'm sure your dear little boy could be sent to some church school free, and THINK--these dreadful modern days-- otherwise, with his beauty, he might get drawn into the movies as a child star, or some frightful thing like that, and be ruined!

Sankha Ghosh, the noted scholar and writer, is the advisory editor who helped select the stories. Do we still go on? The two seated themselves there in the shade of the porch, side by side, with their backs against the pillows and their feet extended.

Madame Lebrun was bustling in and out, giving orders in a high key to a yard-boy whenever she got inside the house, and directions in an equally high voice to a dining-room servant whenever she got outside.
