Uddrag

Nedenfor kan du læse et kort uddrag fra vores study guide til teksten:

Title

“The Shining Mountain” is another name for Pangma-La, a mountain which the main character is also named after: “I called you after a shining mountain so that you would stand tall and be proud, Pangma-La” (p. 18, ll. 5-6).

The fact that the girl and the mountain share the same name foreshadows the relationship dynamic between Pangma-La and her father: “And he pinned a picture of the Shining Mountain on her wall, and told her that one day they would climb it together” (p. 18, ll. 8-9). He is unable to separate his daughter from the goal of climbing the shining mountain, and forces his own ideals upon her. In turn, Pangma-La goes along with this because she wants her father’s approval: “So Pangma-La dried her tears and vowed never to be ordinary and disappoint him” (p. 19, ll. 1-2). She cannot see herself as worthy of her father’s respect unless she is as strong and proud as the mountain after which she is named.
