Frieda’s chamber pot symbolizes territorialism. It is evident from the novel that Frieda was unhappy about the new arrangement and, thus, bitterly taunted Edmund by peeing in her chamber pot and taking the urine to him in her old room. “Frieda…squatted over the chamber pot. When she had finished, she lifted the chamber pot and carried it out on to the landing” (Brook 59). Frieda is angry with Colonel Lewis for requisitioning their home as well as the British who are occupying her city, Hamburg. Frieda’s chamber pot, which is full of urine, symbolizes Frieda’s contempt and resentment against the British. Frieda’ chamber pot also represents her, marking her territory.
