    How does Porter's use of stream-of-consciousness and flashbacks reflect the themes of Modernism?

    this story, PortePorter uses stream
    (610)- " He always had a funny story of some though, usually about an Irishman who made his little mistakes and confessed them... Granny felt easy about her soul. Cornelia, where are your manners? Give Father Connolly a chair."
    Flashback is a method used by modernists to recreate the natural flow of thought of a characters mnind. It helps the reader understand the past as well as present thoughts that the character is and has experienced. As Granny Weatherall's condition worsens, flashback is employed to demonstrate not only that Granny is drifting through time periods but shows a trait of modernism.

    The detail that Granny Weatherall has become disoriented is when she says "I won't see that boy again, he just left five minutes ago...It's night now, heres the nurse" (610). Granny's perception of time has become confusing and she mixes past and present. The doctor has been there in the morning, he returned later at night, and Granny had felt that it had only been five minutes. Another example of time becoming a rather distorted principle to her is the rather interesting account with Hapsy. Sometimes Granny is Hapsy, sometimes she sees memories of Hapsy, and sometimes Hapsy is there, right beside her.

    Throughout the story Granny's thoughts are introduced in a rather confused manner. We believe that this may or may not be the condition that the elderly experience during a time where they feel they may pass on. For a person in Granny Weatherall's position, one who has experienced an extreme shock from an action of a certain someone, George in her case, it may be possible that they, as she did, experience panic or confusion from such mental wounds. Elderly may experience flashbacks and or a loss of control over the thoughts in their mind, thus their position is similar to that of Granny Weatherall.
    "Her father had lived to be one hundred and two years old and had drunk a noggin of strong hot toddy on his last birthday. He told the reporters it was his daily habit, and he owed his long life to that. He had made quite a scandal and was very pleased about it. She believed she’d just plague Cornelia a little" (2).

    ProbablyThe light that is being referred to in the last paragraph or the two last paragraphs is a symbol. To us, our group, it symbolized part of Granny, or more specifically her life mental and spiritual power. As Granny feels sucked in more and more into the darkness this light, that she has finallydrawn into the center of her brain (mental) becomes the one thing that she seizes hold of. When the story ends, she blows out the light leaving us with the question, Did she die or didn't she? We believe that it is all perspective. One might say that she died, as the light was her life force (spiritual), and that she let go of life at the memorylast moment. Others may see this ass just another way of George jilting her. Whensaying that she blowsturned around, and blew out the light,light and fell asleep waiting for another day.
    "The blue light from Cornelia’s lampshade drew into a tiny point in the center of
    her painbrain, it flickered and grief has been eliminated along withwinked like an eye, quietly it fluttered and dwindled. Granny laid curled down within herself, amazed and watchful, staring at the flame.point of light that was herself" (5).

    five minutes. Another, probably better, example is during the final stages of the short story as she begins to slowly near her end, all of her, "thoughts ran round and round. So, my dear Lord, this is my death and I wasn’t even thinking about it. My children have come to see me die. But I can’t, it’s not time. Oh, I always hated surprises. I wanted to give Cornelia the amethyst set – Cornelia, you’re to have the amethyst set, but Hapsy’s to wear it when she wants, and, Doctor Harry, do shut up. Nobody sent for you" (5).
