Edna wants more than what society expects of her
Daisy doesn't care what society thinks of her, and Edna eventually begins to also
Both stray from normal gender roles
"They're horribly common"-it was perfectly simple. "They're the sort of Americans that one does one's duty by just ignoring."
" I haven't the least idea. They're very dreadful people."

The Soul selects her own Society --
Then -- shuts the Door --
To her divine Majority --
Present no more --
Unmoved -- she notes the Chariots -- pausing --
At her low Gate --
Unmoved -- an Emperor be kneeling
Upon her Mat --
I've known her -- from an ample nation --
Choose One --
Then -- close the Valves of her attention --
Like Stone --
Choosing love over everything else.
Winterbourne does this for Daisy.
Soul is not influenced by power.
