To begin with there is plenty of interpretation in Elizabeth bishop’s writing: principally in the tale ” the hanging if the mouse”. The author displays an unusual and fascinating story about animals playing the role of human being in relation to the death penalty; it is a written proof showing that fairy tale comes true. The blending of vacillation, obscurity, rib-ticking, and tragedy is some of the things the authors has greatly used to show her literacy convection as opposed to many writers in bringing up a capturing tale. The ability of the writer to cambalize a very serious scene shows her ability to drive her point home mocking the great formation of the community and poking fun at the strict regulations of the law using what we believe is a short of crime committed by the mouse. The author doesn’t have a particular audience in mind though its evident that it is not meant for children. It tries to show the different views about capital punishment. Just like a human being, the animals at the mantle feel very superior as compared to their subjects. They do not consider the rights of their subjects and brutally use their power to their subjects. For example, the writer says “the mouse fell at each corner, the beetle however without even looking at him lifted her quickly into the air a second until his feet were untangled” (p. 1314).
