These events that contains water help the reader to comprehend Mrs. Pontellier’s logic behind her actions. Water is the most prominent symbol in the novel because it directly affects Mrs. Pontellier.

Mrs. Pontellier repeatedly comes into contact with water and it modifies her character each time she experiences it. This is why water stands out as a symbol as opposed to the other symbols featured in the story.

Time is an illusion of the mind. It exists only in our minds. Change creates this illusion of time. Bases on this fact, we can presume that aging is also a concept of the mind.

We can identify a characteristic of gender roles through the eyes of the persona. The nurturing nature of the mother can be seen when she ‘dried [the child’s] tearful face’. Contrasting to the father who ‘whistling, [comes] home from work’, through the alliteration portrayed through the father as the bread winner of the family and thereby the guardian of the household. By drawing attention to these gender roles in the context of childhood memory, the persona is subliminally implying the permanent repeated display of gender roles throughout generations and how it has not changed.

Augustine poured every detail of his life into his work. I admire him for analyzing every choice he made and allowing others to learn from his downfalls as well. There are plenty of people who find it difficult to look back at what they did in life and to be able to accept the appalling things they have done.

He does not shy away from the difficult questions we all come across at least once in our life.
