The Joy Luck Club

Waverly is hurt, and remembers the first time her mother wounded her this way. Topic Tracking: Mothers and Daughter 5 When she was ten, Waverly was a very talented chess player, and she hated that her mother took the credit for it. When she finally told her mother this, her mother didn't speak to her for days. To teach her a lesson, Waverly stopped playing chess.

But soon she missed the game, so she tried to act as if she was giving in and told her mother she would play again. Her mother screamed at her that it was not so easy. Confused and hurt, Waverly went to her room and tried to lose herself in the game. That night she had a fever, and got chicken pox.

Her mother took care of her, but Waverly saw soon after that Lindo had somehow changed. She no longer cared as much about Waverly's tournaments.

I think that the Chinese girls were supposed to act obedient and respectful to their elders and it seems that there is a struggle between Asian women and their American Chinese daughters and what it meant to be feminine and how a woman should act.

Tan shows that mothers are disappointed when their daughters grow up and they do not act like a Chinese one and do not show the enough respect of their mothers.

I think their problem is not for having different cultures of American and Chinese but rather is on the way of their communication, because the Chinese culture is not totally about obedience and American culture is not completely about liberty.

Moreover, their noiselessness had kept them apart and had made them unknown to each other, though if they were not silent they would have the needed force not only to convey their inherent good beliefs to each other in the best way but also to act freely as themselves.

For example Linda Jong and her daughter Waverly represent a different kind of strength, the ability to keep silent till the right time to come. No choice!

I know this, because I was raised the Chinese way: She says: Consequently, Tan was able to monit and exhibit the Chinese women silence culture in two youth and adult generation with four Chinese mothers and their daughters maybe from , 30, 40,50,60,70 and in China before their arrival to America and later on.

I believe that the central theme of silence connecting them all in the inability of the mothers and their daughters to communicate with each other effectively. However it seems that all mothers of the Joy Luck Club story want their daughters to never have to go through the struggles they themselves had to go through.

They took advantages of some incidents like what Linda took of a few coincident to convince Tai Tai that her marriage to her son is ill-fated. So it might have been the reason why she mentions the daughters as their translations and also says: American circumstances and Chinese character.

Ying-ying recalls that the departure was delayed because the adults talked. Yet, because Waverly did not brief Rich about her mother's habits, it almost seems as if Waverly was waiting for him to fail. It inspired me as a writer and still remains hugely inspirational.
