Walker Beauty When The Other Dancer Is The Self Analysis

Decent Essays

In “Beauty: When the other dancer is the self”, Walker asserts events that happened in her life and reflects her retrospect position that brought her to a sudden realization about how important she is in her life. This is different from an academic text because it is a narrative essay.That is put forth as a form of a story in a chronological order of real-life incidents. This walker’s piece is about significant points in her life where slight or major events, that lead to self-discovering changes took place. When she was two and a half years old the author states that she was the youngest of eight children , and she is from a family of low social status with her father occupation as a driver and a mother that suffers from an ear infection. She was very excited to drive in the car with her father everywhere. I feel like Walker was the purest soul and someone who appreciates little things as a child.
When she was eight years old and was going through a tomboy phase in her life she got into an accident where she lost sight from her right eye, because a bb gun accidentally hit her right eye by one of her big brothers. Then her parents took her to a doctor that got mad because they did not pay more attention to the risk of the situation at hand and made a comment saying, “Eyes are sympathetic, if one is blind, the other will likely become blind too” that hit Walker with fear of losing sight of her left eye too.
