CHARACTER OF THE BOSS IN KATHERINE MANSFIELD’S THE FLY

CHARACTER OF THE BOSS IN KATHERINE MANSFIELD’s THE FLY

Katherine Mansfield’s short story The Fly is taken from the collection ‘Dove’s Nest’ and inspired by her dear brother Leslie’s death, it is one of her finest short stories. The Fly is the story of a person haunted for six years by the death of his son. It is the depiction of anguish. Mansfield’s technique in her stories was to make her characters show their thoughts by a kind of mental soliloquy -fluttering, gossipy, breathless with questions and answers.’ Moreover like Lawrence she creates an intense atmosphere through suggestive details. The character of the Boss in the story The Fly is represented through dialogue, monologue and symbolism. These are the three clear cut sections in the story. The first introduction to boss is to his outside appearance. The second ventures into his mind. The third presents a thoroughly complex character that one has to think over.

The Boss is introduced through a conversation with his friend Woodifield. We realize Woodifield is old, retired, physically weak, and financially not very well off. Boss is presented through the method of contrast. The Boss is stout, rosy, healthy, although five years senior to him, but still going strong and in control of affairs. The Boss has done well for himself. He has a comfortable office with new carpet, new furniture, electric heating and with all the physical comforts that would give him -solid satisfaction’. But all this is appearance. The chink in the armour is the photograph of a grave looking boy in uniform. It was not new, it had been there for six years. The photograph strikes the discordant note. It is one old thing in all that is new. It hides a secret. It is a story of agony that the boss wants to avoid. So he does not draw attention to the photograph. But Mansfield’s process of breaking the appearance has started. She does it through Woodifield. The latter tries to remember something. The Boss feels sympathy for him. This is ironical. We soon question who wants sympathy. However the Boss produces a whisky to Woodifield’s glee. But the whisky unleashes a series of agony for Boss and soon the positions are reversed. Woodifield starts talking about Reggie’s grave and the grave of the Boss’ son nearby. The daughters of Woodifield had gone to Belgium and spotted it. The Boss makes no reply but only a quiver in his eyelid showed that he heard. This is the beginning of the process of suppression of emotion. Woodifield goes on describing the graves. The boss responds without even knowing what he was saying. The contrast in characters is clear. Woodifield had accepted his son’s death and could talk freely about it. But it hurt the Boss to even think about it. He wanted to avoid it. In fact he is a figure of pity. It was a hidden sorrow in his mind. After this Woodifield leaves. The mention of Reggie’s grave was a shock to the Boss. For six years the Boss had suppressed sorrow in his mind. He had never thought of the boy dead but in his uniform, sleeping peacefully. Now at the mention of his son’s grave, which was reality he tried to cry but he could not cry. It is common in Mansfield’s stories that characters come to the brink of tears but do not break down. She avoids sentiments. But she expresses something deeper. The Boss prepared to weep but could not weep. In the initial years the Boss used to break down thinking about his son. He had thought then the Time would not change his sentiments. He had considered himself far more hurt by his son’s death than others. He had worked all his life building up his business for his son. Life was meaningless without him. He had been the proud father. Often they had journeyed together. He had been loved by the office staff and he was not spoilt. But one telegram carrying the news of his son’s death had crashed his world. All this Mansfield narrates to bring out the depth of hurt in Boss and the intensity of his loss. It helps us understand the Boss’ emotions. But now after six years he could not recall his emotions. This was causing him further agony.

Healthcare Industry China Animal Feed Industry Research Report

Animal products such as meat, milk and eggs are an expensive source of food as compared to stable crops. Due to this, the consumption of animal protein in the developing nations is well below the world average. However, the transition in the economies of these countries has lead to growth in disposable income, purchasing power and the consequential rise in demand for animal protein. Food consumption level is now considered a clear indicator of the size of a country’s population and the health of its economy. China is by far the best example to highlight the validity of this point.

China continues to develop and is rapidly becoming a stronger economy. The sophistication and rising standard of living of the population has resulted in a change in dietary patterns. China is the world’s largest consumer of meat and is nearly self sufficient in meeting its requirements. Livestock production has been growing faster than any other agricultural sub-sector in China in recent decades, mainly due to the substantial growth of pig and poultry industries. To support its large number of livestock, the country requires animal feed in quantity and quality. This is the most important reason behind the growth of the animal feed industry in China.

The 6 broad categories of animal species for which feed is specifically manufactured in China are pig, boiler poultry, layer poultry, aquatic animals, ruminant and feed for other animals such as horses and pets. Since China is the largest market in the world for pork, pig feed is the major segment within animal feed in the country. Furthermore, the consumption of chicken is increasing rapidly, thereby amplifying demand for boiler poultry. However, feed for aquatic species is the fastest growing segment owing to the booming aquaculture sector in China.

Cancer Prevention Our Very Best Anti Aging Serum

Cancer prevention is the ultimate proactive health care and our very best anti aging serum.

There is a strong belief about cancer – every one of us is walking around with some form of cancer… lurking within… the billion dollar question to our health, our future, our destiny… what will cause that cancer to grow becoming a life threatening illness, or what within our body will be able to suppress the terror alert, and we go on enjoying life. In the 1920’s, Dr. Otto Warburg, defined critical characteristics of the cancer cell. Cells could become cancerous if oxygen intake had been deprived by more than 35%. To survive, they become anaerobic cells – which means they can survive without oxygen (making it a “tougher” stronger survival of the fittest cell). That is the beast of the cancer cell. It ferments glucose (sugar!!!!!!!!!), fears oxygen like Superman and Kryptonite, and divides out of control.

“Oxidation” is a term for the process of removing electrons from an atom or molecule. Contrary to what the word itself implies, Oxygen is not the only culprit (oxidizing agent), there are many. Yes we need oxygen to live however our health, protection from the nasties of aging, cancer prevention is all about keeping a balance within between oxidative stress (producing free radicals) and antioxidants, our best cancer prevention. Think of antioxidants as the fire free radical extinguishers… providing electrons where needed. The best known ones are foods that contain vitamin C (our raw fruits and vegetables, cooking kills vitamin c) and vitamin E (nuts, seeds, AVOCADO (my fav), fish, olive oil. There is NO need to take vitamin C. Every couple of hours eat a Vitamin C rich food (only lasts in the body for a few hours) and please, unless prescribed by a healthcare professional, please do not take vitamin E supplements.

The Truth About U.s. Medicare Benefits On Filipino Soil

Many balikbayans worry that leaving America would mean forfeiting their U.S. Medicare benefits. Talks about the extended and out-of-the-country coverage of U.S. Medicare mushroomed in 2007. (Early references are available at the My Philippine Retirement website). Is U.S. Medicare portability a rumor or a reality?

U.S. MEDICARE BASICS

U.S. Medicare, created in 1965, was originally intended for American retirees. The program was later revised to cover not just the retirees, but also the younger population who may be suffering from Lou Gehrigs disease, end-stage renal disease and permanent disabilities.

Americans Fear Alzheimer’s More Than Heart Disease, Diabetes Or Stroke, But Few Prepare

Americans fear Alzheimer’s disease more than any illness other than cancer-and for older people, concerns about Alzheimer’s outrank even cancer. More than a third of all Americans know a family member or friend who has Alzheimer’s, and nearly two-thirds of Americans believe they will have to provide care someday for someone with Alzheimer’s.

These are just some of the results from a January 2006 MetLife Foundation/Harris Interactive poll of American adults. The survey, found in “MetLife Foundation Alzheimer’s Survey: What America Thinks,” included questions about how people view Alzheimer’s disease, what they know about it and what they are doing to plan for a future that may include the deadly illness.

A progressive brain disorder that science has yet to defeat, Alzheimer’s gradually destroys a person’s memory and ability to reason, communicate and function. Currently, 4.5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, and the Alzheimer’s Association estimates that these numbers will grow to as many as 16 million Americans by 2050. Increasing age is the greatest risk factor for Alzheimer’s. One in 10 individuals over 65 and nearly half of those over 85 are affected. The Alzheimer’s Association and the National Institute on Aging estimate that direct and indirect costs of current care are at least $100 billion annually.
