Annotation

Comparison of Brett Ashley to Helen of Troy, focusing specifically on each character’s immersion in a totally male world. Contends that their unique beauty and sexuality enables them to acquire elements of “male” status while still retaining essential female aspects. Morgan concludes that each woman suffers great shame due to the sexual manipulation she must use to operate within the world of men.
