Mauma told me this one night when I was ten years old. She say they flew over trees and clouds. She say they flew like blackbirds. When we came here, we left that magic behind. Here, Handful describes the major motif of the novel: flight as freedom from bondage. Blackbirds, feathers, and wings comprise individual symbols within this motif in the novel as well. Both women learn how to fly.

quotes from The Invention of Wings: 'To remain silent in the face of evil is itself a form of evil.'.

Book: The Invention of Wings., I was shrewd like mauma. Even at ten I knew this story about people flying was pure malarkey.

These notes were contributed by members of the GradeSaver community. Handful and her mother were born in slavery and they did not knew what it felt like to live as free people. Despite this, they never gave up on the idea of dying as free men. Charlotte always used to say that since she lived all her life as a slave, she will not die as a slave. Charlotte tried to convince Handful to have the same ideas by telling her stories about how they once had wings and were able to fly. Unfortunately, Handful was not as easy to convince and she did not believed that they were special people. Instead, Handful believed that they were just like any other person, worthy of being treated humanely even if they are not magical beings.
