Figure 75: Essay Excerpt Reference to Conclusion in “Chrysanthemums”

“They both leave and Elisa notices the visitor as they pass him on the road. She tried not to look, but did anyway. She failed to tell Henry that he’d stopped by. She comments that their outing would be good tonight; Henry instantly noticed that she had changed again.  Elisa notices the plants on the side of the road that the visitor throws out. She immediately feels rejected and defeated” (Favors 4).
