Though Strindberg states in an essay written after the publican of "Miss Julie" that Jean does indeed achieve his dreams of escapism, this is not support in the actual play. Throughout the play Jean is continuously at the beck and whim of the ringing bell. This bell represents Miss Julie's father. When the bell is rang, Jean must stop whatever he is doing and tend to what the father desires. Even though Jean kills the pet bird, which represents Miss Julie and the power she has over him, at the end of the play the bell rings and Jean still answers it. After so many loquacious monologues illustrating his ego and superiority complex, Jean cannot escape the father's control.
