#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Yoke


As she ploughed the fields, Gisela was forced to recognize the similarity of her condition to that of the oxen; she was under the yoke of a husband who enslaved her as surely as the yoke the animals were attached to bound them.

  1. Wow — great word, and great usage. When I was young, they still had oxen yoked together — mostly then for show, but some still pulled wagons or plowed fields. The country fair had an oxen pull, and best in show. The horns were tipped and they wore bells around their necks. I don’t know why I’m tell you all this — guess your sentence awakened a long forgotten childhood memory from my Dad’s home turf.

      To be truthful I don’t ever remember seeing oxen under a yoke except in the photographs my great grand mother took; in fact it wasn’t even oxen, they were horses. There’s one of my grandmother and her brother by the yoked animal when they were in their early teens.
      They lived in the countryside and farming was still important between the two wars. I’m not sure how they got to have a camera, which must have cost a fortune at the time but some images staid with me. So I’m glad it actually evokes some memories – more recent obviously 😉 – for you. Thank you for sharing 🙂
