Annotation

Argues that attempts to impose gender norms on Brett and Jake result in misreading the text. Discusses the polarized critical response to Brett’s aggressiveness and Jake’s passiveness over the years, suggesting that shifting interpretations based on contemporary cultural constructs distort the novel’s gender ambiguity.
