在“飞蛾”，由海伦娜·玛丽亚·维拉蒙特斯主题开发当一个人在内部被消耗的怨恨，他们变得孤立，它需要一个极端事件，如一个巨大的损失夺回内心的平静。故事中的“蛀虫”一位年轻的青少年是在她的家庭的弃儿。她不是娘娘腔或纤巧像她的姐妹们的休息。解说员几乎总是感到孤单，甚至在教堂。可让她感到安全的唯一的人是她的祖母。起初，年轻的少女代表不成熟。打她用砖头姐妹，当她生气展示了她的怨恨有多强，她处理它的方式是如何不成熟。她不满的事实，她是不同的，她的姐妹们取笑她。很明显，她从她的直系亲属隔离她的自我，因为她总是和她奶奶停留。笔者通过展示年轻少女的感觉跟她奶奶的方式完全相反，她家人围绕的感觉表达的主题。 The girl connects with her grandma. The grandma represents great loss. She represents great loss because the grandma was the only person that gave her a sense of hope. The grandma must die so the girl can let go of her resentment and rebirth her new accepting self. When the girl says her grandmother watching her makes her feel “how god is supposed to make you feel”, she is implying that god doesn’t give her that safe, comfortable welcoming feeling. The author is trying to show the reader here that she finds god through her grandmother. God isn’t found in just a church for everyone, he can be found in other places too. God can be found wherever one experiences his comfort. The extreme event in the text was not only losing her grandmother but also finally feeling safe and reassured directly from god after she was gone.
