A Christmas Memory2Introduction:“A Christmas memory” is a short story authored by Truman Capote back in 1963. It is acritically acclaimed story that revolves around two friends with over six decades of age gapbetween them. The writing revolves around the beauty, simplicity and the genuineness of theirfriendship. The book is largely autobiographical narrated from the standpoint of a seven year oldliving with his best friend and distant cousin who is an elderly lady. ‘A Christmas memory’ hasoften been recorded, played and acted in theatres and movies by various leading productionhouses across the globe.Every day and everydayness is a theory given by one of the finest philosophers of his time HenriLefebvre. He pioneered this particular theory in 1930s where he defined everyday as anintersection between the truth and illusion, power and helplessness and most importantly everyday is the intersection between what man can control and what he cannot. In this theory Lefebvreargues that in this era of modernization, our relationship to objects has becomes materialistic andfundamental[ CITATION Hen30 \l 1033 ]1. However, Capote in his writings has successfullychallenges this aspect of his theory by displaying unconditional and effortless love between thesetwo friends. In this essay we would be discussing various incidents that challenge this theory.1“Every day and Everydayness.” Word Press. 17 September 2012.https://cityfantasy.wordpress.com/2012/09/17/the-everyday-and-everydayness-lefebvre/.
