All the Small Things (No, Not the Blink 182 Song)

While I have your attention, I'd like to put out that Eye Contact is now taking submissions. It can be a story, poem, or maybe even a picture. There's no theme for this issue, so be creative! Submission can be sent to: eyecontact[at]setonhill[dot]edu SO HAVE AT IT!

Today's post is about Susan Glaspell's play, "Trifles"

"Well, women are used to worrying over trifles" (page 394). As we all find out later in the play, sometimes it's the small things that matter. Actually it's kind of like the process of close reading. You have to look for something that someone else may not have noticed and try and come to a conclusion about it. A trifle to someone else may be something important for another person.
