Vernissage is a short story from 2008, written by Expresse Anderson-Wheeler. The title also means 'varnishing day'. This kind of refers to your day before the beginning of an art exhibition, generally reserved for the painter to varnish his work (complete touchups). We hear the story from Alex's point of view and in third person limited narrator. It means we see the occasions happen coming from Alex's eyes and the narrator tells us just how he sees the situation. It can be apparent we see the story through the eye of a child - вЂќIf she was a food she'd probably be something veryyyy sexy sandwich. вЂќ (line 76-77). The writer also uses short phrases.
I use interpreted this kind of story using Freud's oedipus complex, which is clearly present at the finishing of the account, when Alex watches his mother tightly, while hiding under her bed. In psychoanalysis, this is certainly a subconscious sexual desire in a male child (Alex), intended for the parent of the contrary sex (his mother Frances), and usually delivers hostility towards parent of the identical sex (his father). While the child gets older, the hatred is replace by admiration and the child pinpoints with the male character. One of this is Alex, who mimmicks his father, when he visits brush the teeth right after his dad will it, and this individual wishes being like him. The tooth brush and the clown sandwich, are symbols intended for Alex's development and reveals his prefer to mature and grow up, as he doesn't want the crocodile tooth brush, but simply wants a normal one. Same goes for the banana meal, he would like to say no to that because he feels he is getting too older for that kind of food. Alex is still a kid, I would guess around ten years old. He still needs a nanny to deal with him, plays with his meals and makes remarks & asks questions on a regular basis, like most kids do. (''what's in the handbag, what did you buy the dress for? '' etc . ) He contains a vivid imagination like most kids - he builds the character Varnie Sage in his brain.
