- Womanhood in Thicker than Water A woman's sexual discovery, or her menstruation, or her domesticity, or the development of her body, or a realization of an age-old philosophy, is perhaps, the catalyst to becoming a conventional woman. Regardless, civilization may hint to 'some' rite of passage, but is it clear as to 'what' it is that marks this new title of womanhood. The answer may seem blurred in the complexity of Kathryn Harrison's character Isabel, in her novel Thicker Than Water. Isabel's transformation—sometimes overlooked metamorphosis—is thwarted by her lonely search in discovering herself and her home, while yearning for her mother's love.... [tags: Papers]
