Good Country People by O'connor

Hulga's Wooden Leg Symbol

"She was as sensitive about the artificial leg as a peacock about his tail"(O'connor)Her wooden leg was a source of her pride. She feels herself independent with her wooden leg and able to do everything by herself. She didn't allowed anyone to touch her artificial leg except for Manley, the bible salesman. I think that when Manley removed her wooden leg, Hulga starts feel as if she is loosing her pride and she asked him to put it back
