The Story Of The Dress That Sang
Transcript of The Story Of The Dress That Sang
•This story is about a man named Chameleon who got his farm stolen from another man who was jealous of him. This man Anansi was so clever in how he took his farm but Chameleon was smarter in how he got it back. Anansi was very deceiving and did not care that he was stealing from a man that was already poor. Even though Anansi was stealing from Chameleon, he never stepped out of his character but he did get his revenge without using violence but instead he outsmarted Anansi.
•The theme is you reap what you sow.
The man who stole from Chameleon was tricked into giving Chameleon back the food that was rightfully his plus more.
• The story is told from a third person point of view.
The narrator is telling what Anansi is doing as well as the Chameleon.
Setting & Conflict
• The setting of the story is a small town in ancient Egypt.
• The type of conflict is person vs person Anansi vs Chameleon
“Now it happens that chameleons do not make any roads as others do. They like to walk over the grass and the bushes. Thus there was no path leading from the Chameleon’s house to his farm. So that night Anansi called his children together and told them to clean and make a good path to the Chameleon’s farm. At first they begged their father not to do this, but as he insisted they obeyed him, and in the morning there was a finished clean road and a well-used one leading from Anansi’s house to the farm.”
Why I Used The Excerpt
This is how Anansi made people believe that the farm land belonged to him. The Chameleon had no way to prove that the land was his because he never had a road to his land.
I think the purpose of this story is to inform.
The myth is explaining that stealing is not okay and that karma will always come back on you.
