Annotation

Argues that cultural anxieties lie beneath the surface of The Garden of Eden, manifesting themselves in the novel’s exploration of body/boundary fractures and transformations, specifically those related to gender and race. Examines Catherine’s obsession with tanning and race construction and how they function within the larger text, reading Catherine’s race manipulation as an attempt to recover a lost primeval garden and to connect to the primitivism of Africa.
