Sacrifice

A beautiful woman will surely live a short and anguished life. In China, people stick to the point that women should be without beauty and wisdom. Always, a beautiful woman will be sacrificed for her beauty, no matter where she is. My book reveal is about a woman “Boule de Suif”, which means suet dumpling.

She was a prostitute, a poor woman who used her beauty and body to earn herself a living. Whenever it was, she would be censured despicable. The story happened during a war. However, herabscondence was just like her life. When needed, she could enjoy the appeal and gratitude from others. However, when her value was lost, certainly she would be deserted. Painful fates fellon her and she could use her beauty to gain anything except the respect. When they were confronted with the danger, they sacrificed the kind woman for the sake of themselves. Everyone promised that they would thank the kind woman for her sacrifice, but these promises were all broken and torn into pieces. She saved the cruel and bloody bastards. At the end of the story, she was still in the carriage in hunger and helplessness. Those who had received the aids seemed to forget the slim woman. Did they really forget her? I am sure that they just ignoredher for she was an unchaste prostitute.

Boule de Suif waspitiful, for she savedothers again and again and asksnothing for return. On the contrary, other people, including Monsieur and Madame Loiseau,Monsieur CarreLamadon, Madame Carré and the Count and Countess Hubert de Bréville, took advantage of Boule de Suif and paid back their apathy. It was really ridiculous. Boule de Suif, a prostitute who was not clever and well-educated, was willing to help and tolerate others. Others who regarded themselves as well-educated and noble even ignored the morality on purpose. I still remember the video about the wolves on our extensive English class. Wolves still repay an obligation to those who have come to their aids. To some extent, wolves are more “kind and well-educated” than those people around Boule de Suif. Beautiful appearance couldn’t bury their guilt. They hurt a woman both physically and mentally. How fearful they were! Why did Boule de Suif save them? I have tried to stand on the shoes of Boule de Suif and considered what I will do. I have ever believed that I am brave, wise and independent. Such a person as I consider myself, I find maybe I will do the same thing like Boule de Suif. It is the only way she could save herself. If she refused to entertain the officer, not only the other people but also herself will be killed. Even if they narrowly escaped the death, she would be persecuted to death by her “partners”. Only through this way could she retain her life lowly. Even if she would be deserted like rag, she could live. Nothing is much more important than life. Her decision was correct and effective. In this game, she sacrificed herself for the future. She was tragic and great when she met with the dilemma given by the fate. The sacrifice was valuable and meaningful. As a girl living in such a competitive society, I know maybe I will make some sacrifices for what I want. Certainly I will stick to my base line. I remember that someone said “To make use of yourself is allowable, but to make use of others is shameful.” I hate the betrayers and sympathize but respect Boule de Suif. She is really a good woman, a great sacrifice.

In the dimness within the coach only the sobs of Boule de Suif were heard now and then.

This is the end of the story, but it is not the end of Boule de Suif. She has won her life and she will be blessed. As to the others, I believe they will lose everything to atone for their crimes one day.
