Now, the parrot withdrawals much of Edna throughout the novel since her feelings are fatigue in every aspect with Mr. Pontellier. The parrot voices Edna’s unspoken remarks which impelled her to a stage of an overwhelming sense on numbness. The parrot being caged was identical to Edna’s abandonment of freedom; lack of freedom and happiness.

Alvarez writes that “She tries to laugh, but instead of laughter, she feels ticklish wings unfolding like a fan at the base of her throat.

When I first read Come Into Animal Presence by Denise Levertov I was captivated. The poem spoke to me, after I first read it the way I interpreted the poem is a bit different than the way I see it now. When I first read the book I believed that Levertov was trying to show us how innocent and simple animals are, but yet how humans are not. I thought this, for she used words like guileless (innocent, without deception) and insouciant (showing a lack of concern) to describe animals. She talks about how the animals do only what they know to do, the animals do not leave their course because it is the only thing they know.

Since we have this right our government is able to hear the public’s opinion and do what is most beneficial for the people. In addition, the government allows us to protect ourselves properly by having the right to bare arms.

“Tonight you will follow the great Mississippi River north. It will guide your feet and the North Star above will guide your eyes,” says Alexander Ross, an abolitionist.
