Set in a time and place where a hardly discernible line separated proper behavior from that which was grounds for death, du Tilh was guilty of more than one serious charge....   [tags: Book Reviews] 817 words

Finlay criticizes Davis’s assertion that “By the time [Bertrande] had received [Arnaud] in her bed, she must have realized the difference; as any wife of Artigat would have agreed there is no mistaking ‘the touch of the man on the woman’ ”. Furthermore, Finlay believes that “Davis’s entire basis for claiming that [Bertrande] was in league with the imposter: that is, in sexual relations”....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

Antigone - We are not what we are; we are who society recognizes us to be. The responses from society for our actions are what gives us our sense of self.
