Quote #10

MAGGIE
[…] here, tonight, in this place that death has come into… (III.165.772-773)

In saying this, Maggie not only recognizes the dying patriarch, but she also reminds us of the fact that Straw and Ochello both died in each other's arms in the very bed where she will sleep with Brick. In this way, Maggie is about to stop the cycle of death and lies.
