This comparison sets the scene for the reader to look and see how the new meets the old in the south. The description of her house in the second paragraph "lifting its stubborn and coquettish decay above the cotton wagons and the gasoline pumps– an eyesore among eyesores' (p. 71) is a perfect example of what th...
