STYLISTIC ANALYSIS OF " A CUP OF TEA"
To be honest, when I read the story, I thought " how absurd this is". Thefirst appearance of the story to me was just like this. But when I re- thought about some details I realised that the story is not that absurd. Above, it includes some social factors in it.
