Sandpiper question response

This post is in response to a comment on my Analysis of the Sandpiper by Ahdaf Soueif piece.

The narrator's description of the sea and the sand shows the imagery used in the first and last paragraph to show her contrasting feelings between the two points in time, concerning both her married life and feeling towards her marriage.

The narrator's questioning tone and descriptive imagery of the juxtapositions could also indicate her husband and her's cultural differences and subsequent growing apart.

This picture could help you imagine the imagery used
“But what do the waves know of the massed, hot, still sands of the desert… and what does the beach know of the depths, the cold, the currents just there..” – a metaphor for cultural interactions, where neither culture truly understands the other’s.

Hope that helped.
