Why do people look for experiences that will transform them and perhaps change their lives?

The relation between power and knowledge is a complex feature of both Quicksand and The Bloody Chamber. Power can be understood as the capabilities and influence the characters have, whereas knowledge can be discussed in terms of the understanding the characters gain through their experiences.

As effective as language has become in learning and interpreting history in modern times, images as well as internal mental perceptions have the ability to resonate with people in a way that is uniquely profound and especially memorable. Descriptions, however detailed, can certainly paint a vivid scene of historical events, but acquiring a grasp of the point of view when evaluating imagery can provide invaluable knowledge, as well as evoke emotions that may have been experienced as it happened. In our perception of history, imagery plays an essential role not only in providing a basic context of time and place for different events, but also in forming individual identities. As Huhndorf establishes in her book Going Native, there exists a nationwide mentality that she labels the “American cultural imagination” which consists of how the United States perceives its history in relation to Native Americans.
