Prompt: In the novel Chains, by Laurie Halse Anderson, the main character, Isabel, undergoes significant internal changes throughout the course of the story. In an essay, analyze how Isabel’s character traits reveal how her ideas and personality change as she becomes more independent.

More Details:

An early indication of 13-year-old Isabel’s personality and temperament is evident following the funeral service for the young slave’s former owner, Miss Mary Finch, who had granted Isabel and her younger sister Ruth their freedom upon her demise.

Isabel inquires of the presiding minister, Pastor Weeks, regarding potential destinations for these children. Mr. Robert, the late Miss Finch’s sole surviving relative, has, unbeknownst to Isabel, arranged for the girls’ continued captivity.

Protesting Mr. Robert’s claim that the girls remained slaves despite Miss Finch’s wishes, Isabel, the story’s narrator and main protagonist, describes her reaction as follows:

“I planted my feet firmly in the dirt and fought to keep my voice polite and proper. ‘I saw the will, sir.

After the lawyer wrote it, Miss Finch had me read it out loud on account of her eyes being bad.’”

With this defiance, Isabel demonstrates both the strength of her will and her ability to read, a serious transgression

on the part of a slave and whomsoever would teach a slave to read. Isabel, of course, loses her appeal to Pastor Weeks, and remains a slave, this time to a vicious couple that abuses the girls.

The news that the girls will be sold again into slavery is a terrible shock to Isabel, whose concern for her mentally handicapped little sister tears at her soul. “What if we were split up? Who would take care of her?” she wonders.
