Flying

Fying represents Freedom to Beryl.

Green Hills is another representation of freedom for Beryl. She has other farms throughout the course of the novel, but this is the only one in which she experiences true freedom with the man she loves, her father.

Affrica

Africa represents beauty and freedom to the characters in the novel. While there is a code of conduct, it is less strict than the one found in England.

When in England, Mansfield reverts to his childhood self even though he longs to be different.
