Question and answer
Q: What do you think is the main conflict for the main character of each story "Everyday Use" by Alice Walker, "Half and Half" by Amy Tan
A: The main conflict in Alice Walker's short story "Everyday Use" might be seen as the choice that the mother needs to make in how she treats her two very different daughters. [ Amy Tan's short story "Two Kinds" allows the reader to understand two kinds of conflict: internal and external. Jing-mei's mother believes Jing-mei can be anything she wants to be in America. Jing-mei has self doubt.
Can she live up to her mother's expectations? Does she want to? There are conflicts within themselves and with each other. One conflict occurs when Jing-mei looks in the mirror. All day, her mother had been giving her tests that were frustrating because they contained material Jing-mei hadn't learned. Her mother was pressuring her to succeed in life. She was preoccupied with the thought that her daughter could be as smart as, or even smarter than the children the mother had seen on television. ]
