Irish Revel Mini-Thesis

What I found most interesting in this story was the discrepancy between a cultured town folk party and a “shy” mountain folk party. Mrs. Rodgers, the lady who may have been called the host, abandons all the girls (three of whom are drunk) in order to go likely continue an affair with Brogan. She invited Mary with the intention of having her serve the actual guests, and the other girls made fun of her practically the entire time. These things are, I’m fairly certain, unthinkable to the “shy” mountain folk.
