ADVANTAGES

Butler took her characters of Edana, Kevin, Rufus, Aunt Sarah, and Alice, and turned them into symbols for the assimilation she had witnessed in her own lifetime, and had vicariously experienced through her mother and her grandmother; thus, her novel became not only a reminder of the enormity of slavery, but a scathing critique of the nature of human complacency and malleability.
