Lily and Gabriel

Lily was impressed with how respectfully she handled Gabriel’s rude gesture of offering her money for doing her job. She prided herself on the way she attempted to refuse the money because it showed how she did not accept handouts. Lily noticed that Gabriel’s agitation from the girl’s bitter and sudden response had overwhelmed him. […]

playing with pov-the dance from miss ivors’ pov

Lancers were arranged. Miss Ivors could barely suppress a laugh when she was partnered with Gabriel, thinking the two of them must have looked odd standing next to each other. Even his clothed screamed west Briton to her, and she could not help but notice his gaze meeting her brooch with some suspicion. She wondered […]

Mrs. Ivors’s Agenda

Mrs. Ivors had been chatting with Lily the caretaker about how splendid the butter tarts were that evening.  She had taken a bite of one and placed it back onto the plate, the crumbs rolling to the edges.  The arpeggios coming from Mary Jane’s finger tips on the piano bounced around in the background. Mrs. […]

Here’s Freddy!

There’s no way to show up to a party than late, fashionably late! I drunkenly stumbled into the home of Miss. Kate and Miss. Julia- I’m not sure why such elderly women use Miss- and entered into a roaring round of applause. Because i am the life of the party, I expected such reception: a […]

The Dead from Miss Ivors

Miss Ivors found herself paired with Mr. Gabriel Conroy, a fortuitous occurrence as she had recently discovered something about him that piqued her interest, and displeasure. “I have a crow to pluck with you” she let on a little, not enough to fully play her hand as she would like to see the man worry […]

Gretta’s View

When the song had finished, Gretta looked around the room in search of Gabriel. She had seen him dancing with Miss Ivors earlier, and noticed that he had become agitated during the conversation. Gretta had seen Gabriel like this many times before. He straightened his shoulders, held his head a little higher and he puffed […]

Miss Ivors’s National Irish Conscienceness

Molly Ivors is a very interesting character in “The Dead” as she acts as a kind of national Irish voice that stands up to Gabriel.  According to her point of view, Gabriel must be someone curious to her as he acts awkward around her yet is married.  In a way she acts like a coquette, […]

Lily’s Thoughts

I say, it was quite a strange encounter I had with Mr. Conroy this evening. I haven’t seen him in quite some time and he’s much more particular and peculiar than I recalled. A bit nosy too I might I add! I was taking off his coat and gave my usual greeting to the guests, […]

In Lily’s Point of View

I suppose it may have been too much to tell Gabriel’s wife multiple times to be delicate with the pudding and to serve it with grace. She may think I’m just as much of a loveless freak as Gabriel thinks I am. But this is the life I lead and I somewhat enjoy tending to […]

“The Dead” from Gretta’s POV

At the corner of Winetavern street, Gretta, Gabriel, Mr. Bartell D’Arcy, and Miss O’Callaghan met a cab. Gabriel sat attentively and close at Gretta’s side, as any loyal husband should. The party was great fun and a grand showing of true Irish hospitality, she thought, however there was something holding her mind hostage : the song. […]
