Who is Cornelia and how does Granny feel towards her?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Cornelia is Granny's daughter who is caring for Granny.  Granny seems mostly annoyed by Cornelia.  She says that Cornelia is too good and dutiful and she needs a spanking.  When Cornelia is crying and praying over Granny, Granny doesn't understand what she's doing and tells her to go away.  Most of the annoyance probably comes as a result of Granny's illness which causes her to hallucinate.
