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. Edna primarily enters the cottages of Madame Lebrun at Grand Isle at the very beginning of the novel, where she vacations and this is highly significant especially for the progress of achieving self-awareness, since the cottages on the island are able to offer Edna partial liberation from her family because she is not only surrounded by her own family but also by the Creole women (Special Issue, 2016). In particular, she makes the acquaintance of Adèle Ratignolle and Mademoiselle Reiz, whose “passion” and “candor” leave a conflicting impression on her (Special Issue, 2016). Edna’s mantle of reserve “loosens” and the subtle influences that allowed her to do this included Adèle Ratignolle: “The excessive physical charm of the Creole had first attracted her, for Edna had a sensuous susceptibility to beauty.

What the benefits of using Gruenewald’s memoir is that we get the emotions that she felt during the time and what she thought of the situation she was in. With the memoir we are able to get what a general normal day was for her and everyone in the camp. The downside of using her memoir is that she is trying to remember something that happen decades ago and all the events could be tweaked from her not remembering one hundred percent of what happen. Another downside of using her memoir is she could be bias about what happen for somethings. The benefit of adding a government document is that we would be able to see what they were thinking during the whole process of the interment and what others thought of the interment that the Japanese-Americans went though, for example I would have liked what the government thought when they started to think of what to do after the attack on Pearl Harbor, their discussion on the questionnaire they gave out to all the camps, the release thoughts they had when they released all the people in the camps, and what they thought would be a good apology to give out to the
