The Question and Answer section for Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a great resource to ask questions, find answers, and discuss the novel.
Lula Mae abandoned her children. Note, they were her step-children, and Holly is the name Lule Mae chose to use after leaving her husband.
The narrator gives Holly a St. Christopher's medal that he purchased for her at Tiffany's.
From the text, we can infer that Holly believes nothing should be caged in..... birds and people should be free to go where they please and do what they will.
