Narrow vision, short life
MetadataShow full item record
In this thesis, I examine how vision functions in Kate Chopin’s The Awakening. Vision, as it is used here, refers to an individual’s perspective and their view of the world, not just physical sight. Ultimately, I argue that Edna’s narcissistic vision keeps her from being able to see beyond her present state and conceive of a future for herself, which leads to her suicide.
