Edna was perpetually always under the influence of someone else except in the end which is why she chose to swim in the ocean to never
Juliet sacrificed her relationship with her family when she said that she would rather marry a Montague. Nurse too, sacrificed her relationship with Juliet when she told her Paris was better than Romeo. I think that this whole story is about sacrifice and doing anything for someone you love.

It represented the past as it was not only hand made but it also contained scraps of dresses that was worn by the grandmother and even great grandmother and a piece of uniform worn by great grandfather who served in the army.

The only way to elude herself of the responsibilities of her life was to embrace death and drown herself in the ocean.

At the last moment, she thinks of Leonce and the children, she admits they were a part of her life, “but they need not have thought they could possess her, body and soul” (190). This also reflects societal notion telling her to be submissive, to tend to the house, and adore her
