INTRODUCION In the short story, "Everyday Use," Alice Walker shows us lessons upon true inheritance; what it's and who may receive it. Two hand sewn quilts become the middle of conflict in the actual story. They will also be used to symbolize the real inheritance. Like the quilt, a person's world view consists of events, circumstances and affects that shape that they see and react to the world. "Everyday Use" is really a story of two worlds incompatible. Mama, acting since the narrator, guides us with the interaction of both very different sides embodied in the woman's daughters. The contradiction associated with culture and history becomes more evident since the quilts are introduced to the story. While the Johnson's take a seat to lunch, Dee begins in order to admire the butter churn and also the dasher. Although she's a brief remembrance of Uncle Buddy whittling the actual churn, she is much interested in the churn top like a centerpiece for the woman's alcove table. Nevertheless, Mrs. Johnson clearly remembers providing Dee a quilt to consider away for college and Dee proclaiming these were old fashioned and from style. MAIN BODY
