Annotation

Examines the function of the African stories within the larger context of Scribner’s published novel. Sibergleid analyzes gender, sexuality, and power to argue that Jenks’s edition solidifies David’s normative, heterosexual masculinity at the expense of his “perverse” relationship with Catherine. Concludes that Scribner’s romantic ending, though unsatisfying, is inevitable given its thematic and structural parallels with Davey’s story ending in the death of the elephant.
