Ownership and territory are recurring themes (16 อ่าน)
Ownership and territory are recurring themes. At a literary party, an entitled male author suggests to the narrator that the attention that her writing has attracted is somehow "vulgar". She concludes that he "viewed every female writer as a sitting tenant on his land". Later, she writes: "It seemed to me all over again that in every phase of living we do not have to conform to the way our life has been written for us, especially by those who are less imaginative than ourselves."
