Questions for the text – weakness

September 23, 2012

Read the text and consider:

What weaknesses exist in these characters?

Why are they weaknesses?

How do(es) their weakness(es) drive the narrative?

Are these weaknesses connected to gender/culture/class/other social groupings in any way? To what effect?

(Consider Armour’s comment: “…weakness is an unacceptable trait in the social construction of hegemonic masculinity…” (457 : William S. Armour (2010): Representations of the Masculine in Tagame Gengoroh’s Ero SM Manga , Asian Studies Review, 34:4, 443-465)
