미국 명문 고등학교에서 책을 읽고 쓴 에세이 입니다.
Unlike earlier dialogue and narrative, Janie`s voice strongly reveals contentment and self-identity. These final lines, though not in the black vernacular, are clearly Janie`s true inner feelings. Janie becomes a powerful voice, not only for herself but for all women. As small as her victory over her husband in a single scene may be, her victory over her oppression is much greater. She experiences her life for herself; she takes control of her own destiny, setting her sights on the not-so-far-off horizon.
