bought a slice of honey cake at the baker's. It was her Sunday treat…But today she passed the baker's by,”. This quote shows how she decided to break her Sunday routine. As opposed to continuing her monotonous schedule every week, she got out of the habit, showing major growth in her character. Of course, it doesn't actually show her changing her life drastically, but it's a small start to growing out of the lonely, misfit personality that she has. Question 9 I think Miss Brill has a low self – worth at the end of the story. Throughout the entire story, Miss Brill is observing people and making judgments about them based on her observances. However, when the couple stereotypes her and judges her, she becomes depressed. I mean I understand where she is coming from. The reader can tell that Miss Brill is hurt by the couple's words because she doesn't go to the baker's where she normally looks forward to going every day. She also takes off her fur which she was so proud of. Question 10 In "Miss Brill", the minor characters serve to present her major character trait. In the story, the minor characters around Miss Brill function to reveal her major character trait of isolation. Since Miss Brill always stares at outside world from her personal view point, readers have to interpret all the things or events she sees. Thus, we should look at the minor characters carefully and then we can find out her isolation is revealed especially by the beautiful woman with the bunch of flowers, the ermine toque, the old invalid gentleman, and the young couple.

    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.
