short story by Katherine Anne Porter The Jilting of Granny Weatherall
Answers 1Add Yours
Probably it was an act of defiance. The text shows Granny to be defiant throughout the story. She wants George to go to Hell. She thinks her daughter Cornelia is inept. She thinks her doctor is a young moron and that she is the only one that can clean her house properly. She dies feeling jilted from God.
