Annotation

Reads Brett’s role as central to the novel’s themes of appearance and reality, and of self-realization. Refutes Brett as Circe, instead interpreting her as an isolated, alienated, and insecure beauty struggling to free herself of the superficial label placed upon her by others. Analyzes Brett’s doomed relationships with Jake and Romero in her quest to become a “real” person, pointing to Romero as the catalyst in her movement toward self-actualization.
