From the Paper:

"The following brief paper will discuss the symbolic aspects found in the setting to Margaret Atwood's Surfacing. Additionally, the paper will look at one of the chief characters in the novel and explain how this individual is important to the over-all narrative. In the end, the next several pages will argue that silence, miscommunication and suspicion and how they twist human relationships are central to the story; no less importantly, her uneasy relationship with her male companion, Joe, suggests how communicating with men is not something she can do - or at least not well enough."
