Example text

Vargo concluded that efforts to categorize Rabbit are futile, but the fact that readers and critics continue to respond so diversely suggests that something worth investigating is occurring with respect to our identification with this protagonist. On one level, acknowledging that Rabbit is as likable and as good as Everyman is essential to the interpretation offered here.

Finally, the depth, breadth, and seriousness of Updike's explorations have discouraged close scrutiny. If he had uncovered flaws susceptible to cosmetic revision, if he had not involved the whole culture in Rabbit's hopeless and pathological enterprise, or if he had shown some optimism regarding female ascendancy or the advent of a new man, his representation of masculinity might have borne looking into earlier. As it is, he probes the relationship between assumptions and values at the heart of Western culture and the shape of socially constructed Page 3 masculinity.
