Sealey Challenge Day Five: "Mouth Full of Seeds" by Marcela Sulak

Mouth Full of Seeds is conversational, feels confessional (though I'm not one to assume), and has great use of persona. The voice is spot on and reveals itself.

There is a repetition of themes: religion and the conversion from/to it, place, motherhood/pregnancy, and the ideas of what is feminine and female.

Being a lover of folktales--I am going to simply say that "The Brothers Grimm" is a terrific spin and partial retelling. The idea of what "searching" for a husband is like and what it is like for the speaker.

I will most likely "try on" some of these narrators and techniques. The straight on narration feels so genuine...something to aspire to.
