TheВ AwakeningВ

TheВ undeniableВ symbolismВ inВ TheВ AwakeningВ isВ scatteredВ throughoutВ KateВ Chopin'sВ

novella. В TheВ mostВ prominentВ ofВ theseВ symbolsВ includeВ birds, В EdnaВ Pontellier'sВ swimmingВ abilities, В andВ herВ manyВ differentВ homes. В KateВ ChopinВ expertlyВ addsВ symbolismВ toВ addВ toВ EdnaВ Pontellier'sВ journey. В

TheВ " greenВ andВ yellowВ parrot, В whichВ hungВ inВ aВ cageВ outsideВ theВ door” representsВ EdnaВ atВ theВ beginningВ ofВ theВ book, В theВ beginningВ ofВ herВ journeyВ ofВ selfВ­discoveryВ (1). В DuringВ herВ visitВ toВ GrandВ IsleВ withВ herВ husbandВ LГ©onceВ andВ herВ childrenВ thatВ herВ feelingsВ forВ RobertВ LebrunВ grow. В TryВ asВ sheВ might, В sheВ cannotВ breakВ freeВ fromВ herВ familyВ andВ beВ withВ theВ manВ sheВ trulyВ loves. В AsВ summerВ ends, В theВ Pontelliers'В ventureВ backВ toВ theirВ homeВ inВ NewВ Orleans. В EdnaВ looksВ toВ MademoiselleВ ReiszВ forВ adviceВ andВ sheВ tellsВ Edna, В " TheВ birdВ thatВ wouldВ soarВ aboveВ theВ levelВ plainВ ofВ traditionВ andВ prejudiceВ mustВ haveВ strongВ wings. В ItВ isВ aВ sadВ spectacleВ toВ seeВ theВ weaklingsВ bruised, В exhausted, В flutteringВ backВ toВ earth” (83). В SheВ encouragesВ EdnaВ toВ followВ herВ heartВ andВ breakВ withВ tradition. В RobertВ movesВ awayВ andВ sheВ canВ neverВ haveВ him. В SoonВ sheВ visitsВ hisВ familyВ onВ GrandВ Isle. В AsВ sheВ walksВ alongВ theВ beachВ sheВ seesВ aВ birdВ overheadВ withВ aВ brokenВ wing. В TheВ birdВ " wasВ beatingВ theВ airВ above, В reeling, В fluttering, В circlingВ disabledВ down, В downВ toВ theВ water” andВ itВ isВ thenВ thatВ sheВ realizesВ whatВ MademoiselleВ wasВ tryingВ toВ tellВ her. В EdnaВ doesВ notВ haveВ theВ strongВ wingsВ toВ beВ brave. В

EdnaВ alsoВ doesВ notВ haveВ theВ abilityВ toВ swim. В AtВ theВ beginningВ ofВ theВ summerВ onВ GrandВ

Isle, В EdnaВ simplyВ wadesВ inВ theВ waterВ orВ sitsВ onВ theВ shoreВ whileВ othersВ swimВ becauseВ sheВ cannotВ herself. В SheВ spendsВ mostВ ofВ herВ daysВ withВ RobertВ andВ slowlyВ acceptsВ herВ feelingsВ forВ him. В OneВ nightВ duringВ aВ party, В RobertВ suggestsВ thatВ everyoneВ goВ forВ aВ swimВ andВ itВ isВ thenВ thatВ EdnaВ learnsВ...
