Chinese Seamstress: Themes Individuality “A woman’s beauty is a treasure beyond price” - The Chinese Seamstress uses this quote to follow her dreams which came from the bourgeois books. They give her confidence to do something with her life and she becomes an individual The ending of the story is ambiguous because some people would way that she has understood the book though others would say she didn’t: - She understood the books because she became an individual - She didn’t understand the books because she took the one quote literally instead of the whole book. Balzac said how hypocritical and shallow the people of the city are because they only think about their beauty, but the little seamstress is appealed by the city “Without him I would never have understood the splendor of taking free and independent action as an individual” - Books transformed people and made them doubt the cultural revolution and they were becoming more independent

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
