Annotation

Contrasts the chaotic and violent human action to the ordered and healing natural world found in the novel’s war dominated environment. Drawing on ecofeminist theory, Romesburg characterizes Golaz as representative of the conquering patriarchy, while Maria symbolizes nature and peace. Posits that Jordan represents the middle ground between the two extremes, with Pilar and Anselmo as androgynous characters who exemplify chaos, order, and gender more realistically as fluidly negotiated states.
