Point of View
Reading the story through all knowing point of view, lets you understand the protagonist, Mrs. Mallard and the Antagonist, her sister Josephine, in a more in depth way. You get to understand what they are feeling and read what they are saying by just watching them.
“There was a feverish triumph in her eyes, and she carried herself unwittingly like a goddess of victory.”
“She sat with her head thrown back upon the cushion of the chair, quite motionless, except when a sob came up into her throat and shook her, as a child who has cried itself to sleep continues to sob in its dream.”

In this song the main character is happy that her father is dead in a tornado because of what an awful man he was, much like how Mrs. Mallard was happy that her husband was dead.
