Classics Challenge: Robber Bride Discussion Questions

August 19, 2011 at 12:10 am Leave a comment

Hello, Challengers! Here’s what we’ll be talking about regarding Margaret Atwood’s The Robber Bride:

  • How do Tony, Roz and Charis represent different aspects of femininity?
  • How does Zenia morph to take advantage of each woman’s identity or self-defined role?
  • Who is Zenia? Does the novel ever definitively answer this question? Does it need an answer?
  • Has Atwood’s portrayal of female identity changed from The Edible Woman to The Robber Bride? How so, and in what respects?
Happy reading. challengers!
