  • (bkz: eudora welty)'nin bir romanı.
  • aynı zamanda, (bkz: margaret atwood)'un da bir şiiri:

    he would like not to kill. he would like
    what he imagines other men have,
    instead of this red compulsion. why do the women
    fail him and die badly? he would like to kill them gently,
    finger by finger and with great tenderness, so that
    at the end they would melt into him
    with gratitude for his skill and the final pleasure
    he still believes he could bring them
    if only they would accept him,
    but they scream too much and make him angry.
    then he goes for the soul, rummaging
    in their flesh for it, despotic with self-pity,
    hunting among the nerves and the shards
    of their faces for the one thing
    he needs to live, and lost
    back there in the poplar and spruce forest
    in the watery moonlight, where his young bride,
    pale but only a little frightened,
    her hands glimmering with his own approaching
    death, gropes her way towards him
    along the obscure path, from white stone
    to white stone, ignorant and singing,
    dreaming of him as he is.
