Individuals moving into the world are bound to come across many obstacles that they overcome to be successful. “I’m coming aren’t I? It’s that stupid bleeding door of yours” complains Rita, at the initial stage of going into the world. The door is a symbol for the barrier of going into the world. As Rita progresses, the door becomes easier to open, until she’s at the final stage of going into the world, when she bursts through the door. SimilarlyThese are symbols of the obstacles of going into the world and the effort needed. Once obstacles are overcome, it’s an education for individuals, it provides growth and development.
Although obstacles have to be overcome when going into the world, there usually is a mentor guiding the individual into the world. Frank is the mentor for Rita, “If I had gotten another tutor, I wouldn’t still be here,” Rita shows her appreciation of Frank, by using high modality to explain that he is the reason she’s still carrying on with the process of going into the world.
