Analysis Of Alice Munro
Alice Munro is a Canadian short story writer. Although she wrote one novel in which was published in 1971 entitled Lives of Girls and Women she prefers to write short stories. In an interview for Canadian Fiction Magazine she was quoted as saying I dont see that people develop and arrive somewhere. I just see people living in flashes. This is why in addition to this one novel, she has had another seven books published and they have all been collections of short stories. Born on July 10, 1931 in Ontario, she had her first short story published in 1950. The majority of her short stories are set in southwestern Ontario. A constant theme Munro focuses on in many of her works of fiction is female protagonists that have problems they must deal with as they are struggling with life discoveries.
In reading several of Munros works that theme of discovery becomes clear as the plot of those stories develops. In An Ounce of Cure the story begins discussing a young girl. As the story continues to develop we see the young girl discover love in the form of a boy named Martin Collingwood. Unfortunately
