Storyboard Text

  • "More and more I began to think inside myself, I don't want to sell herring for the rest of my days. I want some day to make myself for a person and come among people. But how can I do it if I live in this hell house of fathers preaching and mothers complaining?" pg 66
  • What can I do...?
  • "I've got to live my own life. It's enough that mother and the others lived for you" pg 137
  • I need to live for MYSELF. Not for you!
  • "In this high-hearted mood I began to look for a room where I could be alone. All the room-to-let signs that I passed seemed like so many doors opening to a new life." pg157
  • I need a place to live..
  • I think that Sarah is starting to think about herself and realizes that she can not just keep selling herring. She needs to become something more but she does not know how to do that because of her complicated household.
  • "Knowledge was what I wanted more than anything else in the world. I had made my choice. And now I had to pay the price. So this is what it cost, daring to follow the urge in me. No father. No lover. No Family. No friend. I must go on and on. And I must go on-alone."pg 208
  • I must pursue and become a person so my family can be proud of me and I be proud of myself.
  • As the story goes on, Sara is tired of her father and wants to live for herself. The father already made her mother and sisters live to serve him because of his "old traditions' he does not work and is dependent on them. Sarah refuses to do what her sisters and mother are used to doing that she leaves. Sarah I would say did the right thing because she needs to be dependent on herself and not let someone "leech" on her. Little does she know she ends up coming back to him and the family.
  • "I could begin my career as a teacher as well dressed as any of them. The dark night of poverty was over.I had fought my way up into the sunshine of plenty." pg 238
  • Out in the world, Sarah looks for a place to stay and she likes the idea of "being alone". This is her first step into becoming something of a person and being able to provide for herself. She works hard to pay rent and soon studies to get into college and become a teacher.
  • "How could I have hated him and tried to blot him out of my life? Can I hate my arm, my hand that is part of me? Can a tree hate the roots from which it sprang? Deeper than love, deeper than pity, is that oneness of the flesh that's in him and in me."pg 286
  • Sarah got sort of side tracked from college with love but soon realized that she wanted knowledge more than anything and in order to achieve that she can not have any distractions and that she is by herself. She needs to concentrate on her goal and to maybe make her family proud of her.
  • Some years later, Sarah has graduated and saved a lot of money and now she can buy whatever professional suits she wants. She is happy that she does not have to worry about the price because she is out of the "dark poverty". She has finally made a life for herself out of the "old ways" from her family. She is excited to show what she had done to her family but they still will not change their ways of doing things.
  • Throughout the whole book Sarah has disliked her father and his "old traditions" but at the end she comes back. It's her father, her family. She can't just put him on the side. She decided she had to keep the "old traditions" for her father to be content. Even though she tried really hard to get away from his traditions, in the end it came back to her.
  • I am so sorry father...
