Moving from the sheltering spaces of nature—the naturally occurring womb-rooms of Chapter Three—to the personal places we call home, the relocation can, paradoxically, invigorate and stifle. Naturalizing the domestic sphere is one method of redefining the home employed by Cather and Morrison. Both authors move freely and frequently between the sheltering space of the house and the expansive space of nature. Home is a complex place; it confines, constricts, contains, comforts. The movement away from identifying woman with nature can lead to the claustrophobic (and contradictory) conclusion that woman equals home.
