Each of the rooms she enters hold meaning for her and she is able to unravel some elements which allow her to pursue her unconscious mind and to delve further into her desires. In the journal article: “The Denotation of Room and its Impact on the Construction of Female Identity in Kate Chopin 's The Awakening”, author Sara Tewelde-Negassi explores the theme of the room as a physical place.
