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. The imagery of the sea being â€˜seductive; never ceasingâ€™ at the end of this chapter provides the sea as an explanation to the reader for Ednaâ€™s deep thinking, who prior to this was being referred to as â€˜Mrs Pontellierâ€™, and after as â€˜Edna
The sea in many ways seems to actually be a symbol for Edna’s ‘awakening’, the most obvious example of this coming during chapter 6, our first sight of Edna discovering herself. The imagery of the sea being ‘seductive; never ceasing’ at the end of this chapter provides the sea as an explanation to the reader for Edna’s deep thinking, who prior to this was being referred to as ‘Mrs Pontellier’, and after as ‘Edna Pontellier’ or eventually just ‘Edna’.
The natural world provokes many different feelings for Plath, which can be explored in many of her poems. ‘The Hermit at Outermost House’ is a description of a hermit and its experiences living by the sea. In this poem, there is perhaps a stronger sense of hope rather than negativity about the sea, it suggests that the power and ferocity of the sea can be conquered. Plath uses positive imagery to convey this. An example of this is when the poet writes, “Backbone unbendable as Timbers of his upright hut?” This line is effective because it emphasises just how adaptable this hermit is.

Suppose that your best friend has just returned from vacation in the Caribbean. As she describes her many adventures, she tells you that the ocean was clear and blue, and the hotel was beautiful and had very attentive staff. Although these descriptions may leave you with the impression that she enjoyed her trip, did it really put you in the moment and give you a true feeling of the joy that she felt? Now let’s revisit your friends trips using metaphors. As your friend describes her adventures, she tells you that she was treated as a queen with her every whim waiting to be fulfilled by the staff and that during her visit to the beach, she swam in a sea of diamonds.
A Woman’s Duality By Maya Asfour Edna’s self reserved character and the propensity to mask her emotions had a lot to do with her mother’s death when she was at a very young age in addition to not being close to either of her sisters, and that all the girls she befriended happened to be of a self contained type. Edna decided to take her place as a married woman with dignity, thus sacrificing her needs to attain the demands of society. But even though she does not attend to her needs they exist inside of her, causing her to question and desire while her body does what others expect her to do. Madame’s Ratignolle compassionate gesture at the beach provokes Edna to realize that she was brought up to be a reserved woman. The gesture also inspires Edna to speak openly and freely and by doing so Edna feels intoxicated as if she tasted “the first breath of freedom” [VII Chopin].
PREPARED BY: zaty In the novel “Pride and Prejudice”by Jane Austen, she illustrates the empowerment of women in terms of being independent individuals. Besides, she highlights that women are not simply an accessory to attract men as loveless marriage is not the only key to ‘happiness’ or economic security for them.

She is the second daughter of a country gentleman who risks poverty if she does not find a husband who can provide for her as her father cannot pass on his estate or the house to her.
The gender dichotomy in Susan Glaspell’s Trifles has allowed the variant of critical opinions of Glaspell's main themes of women’s power within law and justice. Most literary critics focus on female unity as a means of gaining power; however, as Karen Alkalay-Gut notes, "Underlying this attitude is the assumption that . . . women's lives are individually trivial, and their only strength and/or success can come from banding together" (1).
In the song Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat, the lyrics describe the feelings between two people who are in love but are separated from one another because of distance. The writer tries to capture the listeners’ attentions by immersing them into the relationship through the successful use of symbolism, repetition imagery. The usage of symbolism allows readers and listeners to read between the lines and to explore deeper into the meaning behind the words of the song. “Ocean”, known as a great body of water carries the most important symbolism in the song. “Across the water across the deep blue ocean” (3) The word “ocean” is used to symbolize the struggles and hardships with long-distance relationships having to be far apart from the one you love.
