Sketch the character of Miss Brill.
Ms. Brill is a expatriate British teacher living in France, presumably a spinter, who lives in isolation with the exception of sporadic visits to an elderly friend to whom she reads. Her visits to the park on Sunday, and her connection to the fur necklette she wears make you realize that she is alone in the world, with not much to do, since she has spent her life in isolation, consoling herself with the simplicity of park visits, and observing people.
Due to her lack of social interaction, she has internalized a world of her own, where she gives roles to each of the strangers she sees in the street, perhaps as an attempt to connect with them in some internal way as she is unable to do so physically.
She is obviously not happy with her life, though she makes herself believe that she is. This is documented in the way she metaphorically shows how her fake necklette, which she is so proud of, is "crying" as she puts it back it its isolated box. She was crying too, internally, as she put it away since she felt (through the mockery of other park visitors) that she may not be at all welcomed in the world. Maybe, she feels, she must remain alone. It is her reality.
Ms. Brill is the epitome of the human being hungry for connections and communication. She is incapable of changing her situation, so she succumbed to it. Her nature is undeniably a call for help, but nobody seems to listen.
