Storyboard Text

  • Meanwhile at Naxos...
  • I don't like how things are run here! They treat the students unfairly!
  • Meanwhile at Denmark...
  • Helga... Will you marry me?
  • Meanwhile at Alabama...
  • The theme in Quicksand is that it is hard to find your place in the world. We first see this in Naxos where she tells Dr. Anderson "It's more loathsome, venomous disease." (19) She can't stand the place and she decides to move.
  • While with her relatives in Denmark Helga feels comfortable to the point where she lives there for over a year. While there she meets Axel Olsen who falls in love withe her, but Helga feels Denmark is not a good place for a person like her. She rejects him and moves.
  • Married to Reverend Pleasant Greene she has her 5th child in Alabama. She becomes very religious and she feels angered that the colored people haven't progressed and that they haven't excelled as people. In the end Helga is still not happy with where she is.
