In Handmaid's Tale, What can you tell about the period just from the first sentence?

"We slept in what had once been the gymnasium?"


What I put was that it was from long time ago because a gymnasium is used for playing sports, not to sleep and in this sentence it's telling us that they slept there.

  • English -

    So ... why would they be sleeping where people usually play sports??

  • English -

    They could be sleeping in a gym because of natural disasters (weather, etc).hope this helps
