This imagery metaphorically addresses the cycles of birth, death and renewal. It focuses on the segment from youth to adolescence and beyond, when children awaken to their sexual identities and eventually begin to break away from the ties that bind them. As the tension builds the pervading feeling of the swimmer is one of anxiety and frustration on being trapped in the pool.
