ENGLISH | THE MAGIC OF WORDS
Eudora Welty

Mythological Significance of the story
In Egyptian mythology, Phoenix is a bird of great splendor (energy) that lives for 500 years. Then it burns itself and takes birth out of its ashes. Only one such bird lives at a time. The character Phoenix Jackson in the story is very much similar to the Phoenix bird. As bird, Phoenix Jackson is the single oldest woman living in the village. At the ending point of its life cycle, the bird burns itself and another bird in new form accompanied with great beauty and youth appears in the world. Same like the old woman Phoenix Jackson
