Everyday Use pdf
“Everyday Use” is a widely studied and frequently anthologized short story by Alice Walker. It was first published in 1973 as part of Walker’s short story collection In Love and Trouble. The short story is told in the first person by “Mama”, an African-American woman living in the Deep South with one of her two daughters. The story follows the differences between Mrs. Johnson and her shy younger daughter Maggie, who both still adhere to traditional black culture in the rural South, and her educated, successful daughter Dee, or “Wangero” as she prefers to be called, who takes a different route to reclaim her cultural identity.
Everyday Use Summary
The story opens on Mama waiting in the yard for her oldest daughter, Dee’s, return. She reflects on the differences between Dee and Maggie, her youngest daughter, and knows that Maggie will be anxious around Dee and self-conscious. Maggie was burned in a house fire that happened more than a decade ago, where Mama carried her out in her arms as Dee watched the house burn, but showed no emotion. The narrator continues to paint a picture of Maggie as helpless and rather awkward, whereas Dee is beautiful and seems to have had an easier time in life.
