What is setting of "Miss Brill"?
1 Answer | Add Yours
The story takes place in a park, the "Jardins Publiques," suggesting the setting is in a French city. It is a place where people stroll, where some people sit on public benches, and where some listen to the band playing its Sunday afternoon concert. It is evident that the city is quite a small place and along the coastline as the sea can be viewed from the park. And the town is quite small as the band playing during the weekend is the highlight of the town. The setting dramatically reinforces the isolation and solitariness of the protagonist.
