Cora

Character Analysis

Cora is one of the two Marthas assigned to the Commander's household, primarily in charge of household cleaning and menial errands. She treats the narrator with more kindness than many of the other characters. For example, she knocks on the narrator's door before entering, which particularly impresses the narrator since no one else gives her privacy.
