Megan Lawless Com L 114 November 12, 2007 “All her vaguely artistic aspirations had for some time been channeled into making her days fulfilled and beautiful; with time, her taste for the decorative had developed and supplanted intimate disorder. She seemed to have discovered that everything was capable of being perfected, that each thing could be given a harmonious appearance; life itself could be created by Man. Deep down, Anna had always found it necessary to feel the firm roots of things. And this is what a home had surprisingly provided. Through tortuous paths, she had achieved a woman’s destiny, with the surprise of conforming to it almost as if she had invented that destiny herself (38). Anna’s desire in the short story “Love” is creating an orderly and beautiful life. This mainly involves her home, and keeping everything perfect and “harmonious”. She wants her home to be a place that is unlike the rest of the world where things are uncertain or ugly or sad. She wants to create a home that is a shelter from the chaos going on around her and her family.
