Symbolic

Having read Katie's Canon and other essays from women of color, I now realize that there is a "community consciousness" ( which Katie gathered as a necessary canon). Anyway....

With this background, perhaps the scars and injuries  with which Dana returned  are symbolic of cultural or psychological scars carried from the past into the present. Usually when something in literature appears two dimensional , it may be time to read with symbolic interpretation.
