What do you infer about mama from her description of herself
Answers 1Add Yours
Mama is honest about herself. At first she seems almost disparaging about herself but her practical sense honesty shines through,
"In real life I am a large, big.boned woman with rough, man.working hands. In the winter I wear flannel nightgowns to bed and overalls dur.ing the day. I can kill and clean a hog as mercilessly as a man. My fat keeps me hot in zero weather. "
Mama has no illusions about where she lives or who she is. Mama instead has a sensible view of herself, a kind of practical pride. She is a product of her past and present, she is the way she is.
