English Literature – Chinese Seamstress Character Discussion & Symbolism: The Little Seamstress Shows Cultural Revolution is bad, because of communism and that people want to be individual. The Seamstress describes the extreme of what will happen in an individual society – everyone will only help themselves and everyone will be greedy and self centered. As a peasant, the Chinese Seamstress should be involved in the re- education of the narrator and Luo, but ironically they are the ones who end up education her. Balzac’s books are about the corruption and materialism of the city. The Seamstress misunderstands and instead falls in love with the city and turns her back on someone who loves her (Luo). This shows that she is vain, and books can be misunderstood “A woman’s beauty is a treasure beyond price” – Balzac was being ironic and sarcastic, but the Seamstress took the quote literally.

    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.
