Quote that supports Papa being controlling
I wondered when Papa would draw up a schedule for the baby, my new brother, if he would do it after the baby was born or wait until he was a toddler.
CHARACTER CHANGE : Quote that supports Kambili beginning to stand up for herself (orah leaves)
You don't have to shout, Amaka. I don't know how to do the orah leaves, but you can show me.
SETTING : Quote that supports the differing of environments and lifestyle in Nnsukka
I was observing a table where you could say anything to anyone, where the air is free for you to breathe as you wished.
CHARACTER CHANGE : Quote that supports Kambili's defiance
"Get up! Get away from the painting!" I lay there, did nothing. "Get up!" Papa said again. I still did not move.
SYMBOLISM : setting
The walls surrounding the Daughters of the Immaculate Heart were very high, similar to our compound walls... Papa said that the walls helped sway his decision when I finished elementary school. Discipline was important, he said.
SYMBOLISM : Purple Hibiscus flower (Jaja's defiance)
Jaja's defiance reminds me of Aunty Ifeoma's experimental Purple Hibiscus; rare, fragrant with the undertones of freedom... A freedom to be, to do.
CHARACTER CHANGE : figurines
I meant to say I am sorry that Papa broke your figurines, but the words that came out were 'I'm sorry your figurines broke, Mama.'
CHARACTER CHANGE (before) : papa beating mama
I imagined the door had gotten stuck and Papa was trying to open it. If I imagined hard enough, then it would be true.
CHARACTER CHANGE (after) : painting
I knew Papa would come in to say goodnight... I knew Jaja would not have enough time to slip the painting back in the bag..
