In respect to this, who is an MEI's mom?
A strong, resourceful woman, Suyuan never gives up the search for her first two daughters. An-mei Hsu An-mei's mother, the wife of a respected scholar, loses all status when her husband dies; she is raped and forced into concubinage by the wealthy Wu Tsing. She kills herself so that An-mei can have freedom.
Subsequently, question is, what does an MEI learn from her mother? She learns that one's love and respect for one's mother is deep within one's bones.
Also question is, why did an Mei's mother kill herself?
In an article that Tan wrote for Life magazine in April 1991, she explained that Jing-mei "killed herself by swallowing raw opium buried in the New Year's rice cake." After her mother's death, Daisy (Amy's mother) married her abusive first husband in China and had three daughters.
Who raised an Mei and her brother?
Two days before the lunar new year, An-mei's mother commits suicide in order to give her children a better life. Wu Tsing, who is afraid of dead, angry wives haunting him, promises to revere An-mei's mother as a first wife, and to raise An-mei and her brother as his honored children.
