Thinling through the literature
Answers 1Add Yours
The questions are many: how might the narrator be treated in the 21st century if she were dealing with the same "illness?" Has the role of women - both in society and in marriage - changed since the time the story was written? Would the first-person point of view narration give an incredibly skewed version of what was really happening? If the narration were told from an omniscient point of view or if the husband had told the story, how would the story be different?
