  18. 18. Ideas <ul><li>I feel the all the main points taken from these chapters and the text as a whole was to create sympathy among whites in supports of the anti-slavery movement. The authors uses references to her family multiple times throughout the novel to do this versus other authors telling stories of escapes. Linda’s struggle to keep in touch with her family and her desire to be free conflict each other because she leaves and returns because they are all separated. </li></ul>
