1. How does Agnes feel about her conviction at the start of the narrative?
Agnes feels that she must die merely because she is a woman, and her honest involvement in the matter has been disregarded. She infers that men will eliminate all women in one way or another, and that men will be left to believe and propagate their own delusional thoughts and selfish needs. She knows that her life was not always cold like now, but she is hopeless at this point. "They said I must die. They said I stole the breath from men, and now they must steal mine" (1). "I will vanish into the air and the night. They will blow us all out, one by one, until it is only their own light by which they see themselves. Where will I be then" (1)?
