The Haitian people find refuge in water. Danticat demonstrates this in “Children of the Sea”, where the boyfriend boards a boat away from Haiti.

Childhood is a major component of The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman which intertwines the story with wonderment and confusion. The Ocean at the End of the Lane begins with a grown man, that also narrates the book, who has traveled back to his childhood town for a funeral.

The poem “History Lesson” written by Natasha Trethewey has a unique form of style and rhythm that causes the reader to rely more on their comprehension of the story than the presented facts. Specifically, in the beginning of the poem the writer describes herself standing, with her hands on her hips in a flowered bikini while her grandmother, beaming, takes a photograph of her. In the middle of the poem she states that the beach has recently been opened to people like her and her grandmother. Finally, at the very end of the poem she says “Forty years since the photograph where she stood on a narrow plot of sand marked colored, smiling, her hands on the flowered hips of a cotton meal-sack dress.” The writer formatted this poem in a way where she did not put the information together in order to create ambiguity. The poem was formatted in this way so that the reader would have to logically assume that the grandmother was not only taking a picture of her granddaughter at the beach, but was reflecting back to her past and admiring the opportunity that her granddaughter was getting to have that she did

In this poem, a boy discovers the attractive nature of the ocean. He hears the ocean calling to him, “A word then (for I will conquer it,) …the sea, / Delaying not, hurrying not, / Whisper’d me through the night, and very plainly before daybreak, / Lisp’d to me the low and delicious word death, / And again death, death, death, death” (Whitman, 170-180). The ocean whispers death to the boy, yet he feels as though he can conquer death, and nature itself, so he I not afraid. Though the ocean represents death, it also represents freedom to this boy, and also for Edna. For Edna, death would free her from the expectations that weigh her down, and her soul could finally be free.
