An Analysis of Everyday Use Everyday use is the article I like the most in all the articles that we learnt. At the first time I see this title; I feel no interest in reading this article, because it’s just an everyday use. But after I read it, I knew that this title has special meaning to the author and for the reader. This title contains a very important question whether or not heritage should be preserved and displayed or integrated into everyday life. People have their point of view to this controversial issue, Like Dee (Wangero) in the story, in paragraph 70, line 4, “Hang them,” she said. As if that was the only thing you could do with quilts. That was one of the good ways, I have to admit. But when Maggie gave out what she thoughts, I was really touched by what she said. In paragraph 70, line7, “She can have them, Mama,”...” I can ’member Grandma Dee without the quilts.” After read what Maggie said, suddenly I got the same feeling with Mama (Mrs. Johnson), in paragraph 75, line 7- When I looked at her like that something hit me in the top of my head and ran down to the soles of my feet… I did something I never had done before: hugged Maggie to me, then dragged her on into the room, snatched the quilts out of Miss Wangro’s hands and dumped them into Maggie’s lap. Mama perfectly sure that the quilts should give to Maggie; the most precious heritage should be given to someone who understand it and love it truthfully. This article has 4 characters; each of them has different personality. Mama (Mrs. Johnson) - the narrator of the story. She is not a pretty woman, in paragraph 5, first line “In real life I am a large, big-boned woman with rough, man-working hands. She is a strong woman; even as strong as men, in paragraph 5, line 3” I can kill and clean a hog as mercilessly as a man.” She is a brave woman, in paragraph 5, line 5” I can eat pork liver cooked over
