Chapter 10: Swimming

Swimming can be an important symbol in chapter 10. Before she learned how to swim she was a push over and very dependent on her husband. But now she finds this new source of confidence and self pride to stand up for her self. Which was never done from women during this time.

The hammock can be symbol for chapter 10 also. It can be a symbol of Edna saying no to her husband and spending the night with Robert.
