In Crabs Raiza Explains Her Refusal To Marry According To Her Parents Arrangements A 2330486

In “Crabs,” Raiza explains her refusal to marry according to her parents’ arrangements and instead to run off with Eric: “I thought I was choosing freedom” (36). This simple statement attests to the complexity and elusiveness of freedom. What did Raiza seek freedom from? Or is it rather a freedom to…, in other words freedom to do, say, act? Does Raiza achieve this freedom? If so, at what cost? If not, why not? What does Raiza learn about freedom that changes her perspective on her choice? (Pay attention to tone: I thought I was choosing… suggests she wasn’t fully aware of the meaning or implications of her choice.)
