The switching points of view of this story are a challenging formal feature. Animals, moreover, particularly domesticated animals, share with women the fate of being subject to the pressures of both nature and man, as well as being relegated in the position of mindless servants. In the post colonial context, the figure of the animal is usually employed to negotiate colonial questions of control of language and body, and to metaphorically represent violence and appropriation.
These range from their subjugation and marginality at home and in society, to the violence they suffer from their fathers and husbands; from the contrasting feelings and implications of motherhood love, sacrifice, loss , to their often uneasy relationship with art; and from dangerous, extra-marital relationships to the issues of madness and superstition.
