Storyboard Text

  • Edna Pontellier, a confused woman of the XIX century, feels left out of her society. She does not know herself and looks for a solution. 
  • Maybe I should be more like my best friend, but I don't want to feel caged.
  • My poor best friend needs to man up.
  • Edna wants to teach herself how to swim and thinks swimming is something she can do on her own and feel free.
  • I can do this. I am possible not impossible. 
  • Edna may you please come to bed. 
  • Right after Edna learns how to swim she feels independent and refuses to go to bed when her husband asks her too.
  • I am not tired. Do not wait for me. 
  • Edna decides to move to the pigeon house to feel independent and free. Here she feels useful and has the ability to provide for herself without a man's help. 
  • For the first time, I worked for something and became more assure of the indepence I want.
  • Edna is in Mme. Ratignolle's house venturing about her life. Here Mme. Ratignolle tells Edna to think about her children not just her life. 
  • I would give my life for my children...
  • I would give up the unessential; I would give my money... 
  • but I wouldn't give myself.
  • Edna Pontellier, a confused woman that feels left out of her society and does not know herself. Looks for her only solution... death. 
  • As I once said to a caged bird in my house: "he could speak a language nobody understood"... I am that bird and I am caged in this society.
