“Rosemary Villanucci, our next-door friend”

- They call her ‘next-door friend’, instead of calling her a neighbour almost as if she cant be classed as just their neighbour.

“Sits in a 1939 Buick eating bread and butter”

- Bread and butter is typical white food, and the Buick helps represent her wealth.

- It shows how white people do a lot more luxurious things.

“Grown ups talk in tired, edgy voices about Zick’s Coal Company”

  • ‘tired, edgy’ shows the hopelessness they feel whilst working.

  • Coal would have been extremely expensive at this time.

    “We fill burlap sacks with they tiny pieces of coal lying about”

    - they don’t have much of a childhood, forced to work since they were young.


“Glancing back so see the great carloads of slag being dumped, red hot and smoking”

  • The use of all the adjectives helps in creating imagery for the reader.

    “Our house is old, cold and green”

    - The use of the word ‘green’ symbolises the rotting and mould of the house.

    - Morrison has used assonance to emphasise the simplicity of the house with the word ‘old, cold’

“A kerosene lamp lights one large room”

- This shows the audience that they live in a simple house, and that they are not wealthy.

“The others are braced in darkness, peopled by roaches and mice”

- This shows the lack of hygiene within the house.

- The use of the word ‘braced’ makes it seem as if they are waiting for something to happen in the darkness
