The Awakening

1. What does the parrot say? What does it mean? How might these comments foreshadow what will occur in the novel?

A green and yellow parrot, which hung in a cage outside the door, kept repeating over and over:

"Allez vous-en! Allez vous-en! Sapristi! That's all right!"

This quote possible foreshadows the acceptance and lack of thought with which the characters in the story live their lives.
