schema:description"In this book, author David Hadaller postulates that fictive gynicide as a ritual sacrifice of women occurs in the novels of William Styron as a means of revealing the very nature of social systems of oppression and dehumanization. Women are victimized, and Styron unflinchingly records their suffering to bring their voices out of the silences that have marginalized them. As such, Peyton Loftis in Lie Down in Darkness may be among the quintessential American heroines produced by male authors, because Styron articulated through her the angst of twentieth-century America."@en
