Andy feels humiliation from the experience and associates the sound of the sea as a headache, much like her dread of becoming a “girlie” girl. As the next day approaches Andy goes to fetch firewood and spots a deer.
Discuss how innocence and loss thereof, are portrayed in Alice Walker’s ‘The Flowers’ and Lillian Heker’s ‘The Stolen Party’ “Maybe innocence is a skin you must shed to build layers more resistant to the caustic truths of the world.” –Hector Tobar. This quote gives a reason as to why innocence may be lost due to experience. In the short story, ‘The Flowers’ by Alice Walker, a young girl discovers a hung man in the woods while she is picking flowers. We see how she changes after that experience as she has been exposed to something that she will never fully recover from. The name of the short story is important as flowers symbolise innocence due to their beauty and delicacy but it can also symbolize death as they are associated with funerals and graves.

Having "flowers" "plucked" out of a woman's private bedroom suggests that Jeanie lost her virginity as a result of her encounter with the Goblins, this is backed up when Rossetti says that she ‘fell with the first snow’ due to the fact that in Victorian times a ‘fallen woman’ was someone who had lost their purity i.e. their virginity. This also provides more evidence to the obvious presence of sexual undertones/ imagery. Also, the fact that no flowers grow on her grave suggest that her death is both moral and spiritual, both the hopes of a fruitful life on this earth, and salvation in the next life have been taken away from her as a result of taking the Goblins offers. The second time

“The Flowers” is not a long story, but it is filled with amazing descriptions and contains a profound message of the lost innocence at the end. One way Walker uses her text to share her point of view is her use of theme, from life to death. In the beginning Myop is happy, signing, and cheerful almost as if she did not have a care in the world. As she wonders along gathering wildflowers the mood changes to gloominess. Walker shows this as she describes the air as no longer keen, but “damp.” A certain “strangeness” and “gloom” is sensed making Myop’s outing “not as pleasant” as usual.
