“Her name was Irene Scheerer and her father was one of the men who had always believed in Dexter. Irene was light haired and sweet and honorable and a little stout and she had two beaus whom she pleasantly relinquished when Dexter formally asked her to marry him.” (Fitzgerald pg. 974).

It is a sad spectacle to see the weaklings bruised, exhausted, fluttering back to earth”. This extension of the bird metaphor reveals Mademoiselle’s deep understanding of the significance of Edna’s transformation, both to Edna personally and to society as a whole as a feminist awakening. Additionally, the imagery of “the weakling, bruised, exhausted,..” also foreshadows the ultimate ending in which Edna drowns herself in the water of Grand Isle, both as a sign of her exhaustion and her final effort to seek personal freedom. It is also in the presence of Mademoiselle Reisz that Edna first confessed her love for Robert Lebrun, stay updated about Robert’s travels through his letter to Mademoiselle, and leaves Mademoiselle’s loft every time with a manic elation.

Chopin ties the bird falling back to all previous bird related symbolism, especially when Mademoiselle Reisz checks out Edna’s wings. This final mention of birds is extremely significant.
