"While some male authors also use such imagery for implicitly or explicitly confessional projects, women seem forced to live more intimately with the metaphors they have created to solve the "problem" of their fall."
I found this quote interesting, because MEN also use techniques similar to women. Women are victims, I agree, but the point I wanted to focus more on through this quote is that men couldn't use this exact psychological writing technique because they weren't culturally treated the way women were.
I think it unimportant to add a detail such as this in their critical essay because it doesn't reflect on their thesis or their point. Women were treated as victims and were trapped so it was seen in their literature, but men cannot convey this same style in their writing because they don't know it.
Think this makes sense...so why did Gilbert and Gubar add sentiments just like this quote into their essay??
