Annotation

Putnam argues that femininity is represented as both “bountiful mother” and “eroticized other” in the pastoral elements of the author’s fiction. Analyzes the role of nature in “Big Two-Hearted River,” and briefly treats the same theme in several of his other works, to demonstrate how this paradox creates a tragic adventure, which appeals emotionally to female readers.
