Hedge's statement

greenspun.com : LUSENET : americanlit : One Thread

At the end of Chapter 10 in the last sentence,"She had never felt really cool since the time she was in the fire." I think this sentence carries some important meaning to it, but could also be taken in different ways;what is your opinion?

I think the only significance that statement carries is that she is still in some pain from the fire. The fact she feels warm might be why she sits at the window. I think it tells us she never fully recovered from the burns.

i think this is a metaphor for how she feels she is able to live. SHE FEELs she is somewhat unbearable to look at< and she is reminded everyday of the pain she suffered. because she is constantly reminded, she can never feel "cool" again.
