8 June 2007 Professor Bruce Bassoff ENG 4224-100 Study Questions #4 Three instances of when the narrator colludes with the main character, Maria in her self-deception deal with the use of the adjective “nice” and the verb “like.” The boys that she once took care of, Joe and Alphy found her a job “…in the Dublin by Lamplight laundry, and she liked it” (p.96). Her position in the laundry is to do dirty household work as a “scullery maid in this less than genteel environment” (p.279). Maria seems to be in a calm, complacent role within her circumstances. Furthermore, Protestants run the laundry. Maria is a Catholic who held her own reservations about Protestants before she worked for them and her views miraculously change when they employ her. Maria is “forced to rise at an earlier hour than usual on a Mass morning and sets her alarm-clock accordingly” (p.280). She has to adjust her schedule to practice her religion so it does not interfere with her duties. She felt the people she worked with were “very nice people”
