Vocab + Theme

So for this vocab post I am going to give you a vocab word, and a theme from the short story “A Worn Path” by Eudora Welty.

Vocab- Resilience

Definition- the power or ability to return to the original form, position, etc., after-being bent, compressed, or stretched; elasticity.

How this ties into my theme you say? The main character Phoenix Jackson, has resilience, i say this because even though she has challenges facing her (just like in the hero’s journey), she is like a rubber band and snaps back into her mission. She ultimately achieves her goal and gets her grandson his medicine.

Now here is a picture of my mother stretching a rubber band, showing resilience.
