In the “Trees of Gold” Rebecca describes her journeys and how she remembers them. Wherever she goes she collects a new toothbrush . These toothbrushes are used to catalog her life in a way, as she states that she will have to keep them until she finishes with her autobiography. From this she goes into describe all the places that she has been and the beauty that she has seen. Much like the romantic period she utilizes a vast range of personification to give life to the beauty of nature all around here. At first I did not see how this could be possibly feminist, yet as she continues she ties it back in to how the beauty of oneself should be embraced. That the women of culture should not need to hide themselves, and truly embrace who they are. This beauty is god-given and natural just as the rest of the world, yet why then would god-fearing people reject it? To this end is why Rebecca feels that she is strong in herself and her convictions, that god sanctioned them to be so then that is how it shall be.
