Abstract

This essay explores the narrative strategies of Angela Carter’s The Passion of New Eve and John Fowles’s The Magus. The essay argues that, by encouraging and then deterring what social psychologists call readers’ “experience-taking,” the novels compel readers to entertain the protagonists’ progressive standpoints and to interrogate problematic gender norms.
