Question Set Two
To what extent are “Everyday Use’ and “Two Kinds” structurally similar?
Klages writes that “meanings can, and do, vary widely, but only those meanings which a community or culture agrees upon will appear to name reality” (35). How do communal and cultural contexts affect the meanings Mamma and Wangero/Dee, from “Everyday Use,” find in the signifier heritage?
Once again, Klages writes that “meanings can, and do, vary widely, but only those meanings which a community or culture agrees upon will appear to name reality” (35). How do communal and cultural contexts affect the meanings Jing-mei and her mother, from “Two Kinds,” find in the signifier genius?
On page 40, Klages writes that “signs are stored in your memory, for example, not in syntagmatic linear chains, but in associative” What network or cluster of signs do Mamma and Wangero/Dee, from “Everyday Use,” associate with the quilts at the center of the story?
On pages 42-43, Klages writes that “Levi-Strauss discusses how binary pairs, particularly binary opposites, form the basic structure of all human cultures, all human ways of thought, and all human signifying systems.” What binary pairs form Jing-mei’s ways of thought and influence her actions in “Two Kinds?”
