Document Summary

Eng364 lecture 16: toni morrison, recitatif & philip roth, defender of the faith (02-05- Maggie: story ends with roberta asking twyla what happened to maggie state of confusion reflects how reader feels about story itself. Defender of the faith: title of person tasked to protect religious rights, originated from pope/henry viii conflict, story never clarifies who is the true defender grossbart claims to be but is playing the system, Marx is indifferent to his religion but tries to help other jewish soldiers, etc. Intersectionality: story features few women, who only act in serving capacity to the men, no black characters but are mentioned as an offensive comparison. Jewish people at time of story were allowed to enlist as long as they were nonchalant about their religion. In the end, marx sends grossbart and co. away for revenge for grossbart duping him and undermining his authority: grossbart subtly undermines him throughout story: lying to him, calling him sir, etc.
