: In the Yale lectures on the American Novel that I
: watched online the professor said that Roth was widely
: consdiered a misogynist. The books of his I've read,
: while not anti-female by any means, could easily be
: called sexist. In The Human Stain and Sabbath's
: Theater, the intellectual and creative women are
: either frigid or neurotic. While the desirable women
: with healthy sexual appetites are either illiterate or
: have very limited education.
You haven't said this before. Very interesting. I had to look up misogynist to remember what it meant. Sometimes people are these things (misogynists for instance) subconsciously. I wonder what Roth's reaction is to the charges.
