The Awakening Syllabus Ms. Gomes Vieira herself. Identify several moments in which this struggle is apparent, and write an essay that explains how the text portrays Edna's growing awareness of these contradicting views. What is the significance of this perceived split between the "outer Edna" and the "inner Edna"? 2.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
