In class today, we described the Borden Perspective, Mary Borden seems to be an omniscient character who describes the war as she if she is only observing it. Here our classmates drew two pictures describing Borden perspective.
The first picture above resembles the captive balloon looking over the battlefield, towns and how it is tethered to the cabbage field. Here we presented that Borden is the man who lives in the ballon, watching over everything from the sky.
This picture resembles a pair of eyes, In one eye we can see the captive balloon and how it is described as an oyster in the sky and the other eye resembles the bombardment. Borden as a narrator does not often put herself as a character in her book and as depicted here she is the observer in both pictures.
What is your thought on Borden’s perspective or the pictures here?
