  Resolved Question: The Children of Men -
So I procrastinated a bit on my essay which is about The Children of Men by PD James, and I have to write about freedom. I decided my essay will be about freedom from Xan. So I'm still reading it but maybe halfway through and I CAN NOT find any quotes to back up my thesis, which is freedom from Xan. I need 4-5, plus the page you got them from. And a little context prior and after the quote would help alot, If not possible then the quote is already enough. It's difficult because I can't really good it because of the movie that was made after it.. But thanks so much. *DO NOT WANT PEOPLE SAYING "Go do your own homework" ect. I have alot of other stuff I'm doing and just don't have the time to finish the book!* 10 EASY points to whoever does this!
