Annotation

Surveys the presence and absence of female characters considering the larger themes of violence, miscommunication, and loss of control that permeate In Our Time. Argues that while Helen of “Cross-Country Snow” may be physically absent from the story, her role is critical in a text strewn with ignored, misunderstood, and traumatized women. Fenstermaker writes: “Helen images hope for this generation by helping realize a desideratum long sought in these tales—a fruitful male/female relationship.”
