Daily Writing for "The Fight" in Octavia Butler's Kindred [50 Points]

Write an essay in which you discuss how the chapter title, "The Fight," functions both literally and figuratively. Begin your essay by introducing the novel and author and the point in the novel at which this chapter appears. Then state a thesis about how the chapter's title functions on more than one level. Complete your essay by providing discussion of specific scenes and events that support your thesis. It would, of course, be logical to begin the discussion with comments on the literal fight that draws Dana back to the Weylin plantation in about 1825 and then to discuss other examples of the concept "fight" appearing in the chapter.
