Amy Tan's beloved, New York Times bestselling tale of mothers and daughtersFour mothers, four daughters, four families whose histories shift with the four.

Waverly is humiliated, and realizes that there will never be a good time to tell her mother that she is marrying Rich Schields. Waverly's friends don't understand why she should be so afraid of her mother. Waverly just says it has something to do with her mother being Chinese--she knows how to hurt her daughter like no one else, with only a few words. Waverly knows that her mother has avoided meeting Rich, or even talking about him. After their lunch, she took Lindo to her apartment, hoping to let her know there that she and Rich are getting married. She knows that her mother will not be able to ignore the evidence of Rich all over the house. But Lindo does ignore it, saying only, "You are busy.

Tan shows that mothers are disappointed when their daughters grow up and they do not act like a Chinese one and do not show the enough respect of their mothers. I think their problem is not for having different cultures of American and Chinese but rather is on the way of their communication, because the Chinese culture is not totally about obedience and American culture is not completely about liberty.

Moreover, their noiselessness had kept them apart and had made them unknown to each other, though if they were not silent they would have the needed force not only to convey their inherent good beliefs to each other in the best way but also to act freely as themselves. For example Linda Jong and her daughter Waverly represent a different kind of strength, the ability to keep silent till the right time to come.

No choice! I know this, because I was raised the Chinese way: She says: Consequently, Tan was able to monit and exhibit the Chinese women silence culture in two youth and adult generation with four Chinese mothers and their daughters maybe from , 30, 40,50,60,70 and in China before their arrival to America and later on. I believe that the central theme of silence connecting them all in the inability of the mothers and their daughters to communicate with each other effectively.

However it seems that all mothers of the Joy Luck Club story want their daughters to never have to go through the struggles they themselves had to go through. They took advantages of some incidents like what Linda took of a few coincident to convince Tai Tai that her marriage to her son is ill-fated.

So it might have been the reason why she mentions the daughters as their translations and also says: American circumstances and Chinese character. How could I know these two things do not mix?

More From Zahra jamali ghotlou. Zahra jamali ghotlou. She no longer cared as much about Waverly's tournaments. And soon Waverly began to lose.

The Joy Luck Club

The only thing that remains of their marriage is their daughter Shoshanna , who Waverly at first didn't want but now loves deeply. She knows that Rich loves her the same way.

He is kind and honest and direct, and he makes her feel loved just for being herself.

But still, Waverly tries to protect herself and Rich from her mother's critical eye. Finally, she comes up with a plan to get her mother to meet Rich so she will learn how wonderful he is. She takes him to dinner at Suyuan's house, and tells Suyuan that Rich said he had never tasted such good Chinese food.

Waverly knows her mother will not be able to resist the competition, and sure enough, the next day she and Rich receive an invitation to dinner at Lindo's house. Waverly makes Rich promise to tell Lindo that her cooking was better than Suyuan's.

But the meal is a disaster. Lindo hates the way Rich looks, and Rich doesn't understand Chinese table manners. He takes too much food, and does not compliment Lindo the way he is expected to.

He doesn't even see how badly the evening went. She realizes she has to do something, so she abruptly goes to her parents' house the next morning. She breathlessly tells her mother about the engagement. Her mother tells her she already knows. When Waverly tries to ask her mother why she hates Rich so much, Lindo denies having any bad feelings toward him.
