Abstract: »Christine Atkins reads "Good Country People" as a rape-script that overrides the script of Joy-Hulga's fantasy of seduction, demonstrating that Joy-Hulga's violation points to women's lack of self-control (over body and mind) and the violence often associated with the coming-of-age experience for females, particularly those who fail to adhere to patriarchal norms.« (Source: Teresa Caruso. »Introduction: "On the subject of the feminist business."
