2. What role does fate play in Emma’s downfall? To what degree does she have power over her own destiny?

Oh, I don't think that Fate has anything to do with Emma's downfall. Her life and her death, were completely of her own making. In fact, this story should show us how little "Fate' had to do with anything. By describing her thoughts and situation in such great detail, we are allowed to see and be a part of evey bad decision she makes, and every consequence that comes of it.

I don't think that fate had much to do with it, but destiny was harder to achieve if a woman had different expectations back in those times.

Now adays if you are in a different class it is easier to achieve your dreams.

No fate had nothing to do with it. She made choices all along the way as did her husband and the other maen she associated with. Perception had evertything to do with it. if she had chosen to see the good in her huband she might have been happy. If she had decided motherhood was a good and natural thing she could have occupied herself with rasing her child.
