Fred Yip English R1B: Section 3 Marguerite Nguyen March 1, 2007 Fear Within the Painted Veil In W. Somerset’s, “The Painted Veil,” the beginning pages of the story inform the reader of an affair between two characters, Kitty and Charlie. The description that Somerset writes from the illicit situation shows obvious fear and concern in the couple of being caught by another character, Walter, giving the impression that he is Kitty’s husband or boyfriend. Specifically, the passage from pages 2-3 demonstrates the anxiety in both Kitty and Charlie with the vivid portrayal of the setting with the shuttered windows and knob handle, and the word choice by the author, using such words and expressions as “terrifying” and “Oh, my God!” to place even more emphasis on the panic of the two characters possibly being found together. The passage starts out “[t] hey spoke in whispers now. She was quaking” (pg. 2.)
