Chopinâ€™s main method of shaping Ednaâ€™s identity in particular is arguably through her surroundings and those she seeks company with. The most obvious example of a surrounding that has a certain influence on Edna is of course the sea. Living in land-locked New Orleans for the entirety of her life, the sight of the sea is made out to be fascinating to Edna; it implants a thought to explore in her inquisitive mind. This curiosity is expressed as â€˜Edna Pontellier, casting her eyes about, had finally kept them at rest upon the seaâ€™, displaying that this is all she can really focus on and is all she is currently interested in. The sea in many ways seems to actually be a symbol for Ednaâ€™s â€˜awakeningâ€™, the most obvious example of this coming during chapter 6, our first sight of Edna discovering herself.

Dickinson often writes on the power of words. The strongest voice Dickinson has is her own; however, this voice is really only seen in her poetry.

Nature becomes a symbol in her writing to explain the complexity of her relationships, in this particular poem links nature to hope.
