English Workshop 3- The Big Sleep September 24, 2012 Questions for Discussion 1. All three women have a flaw that we see either right away (whether it be a clear mental problem, or dependence on a man who does not truly care about others), or we learn of these flaws through Marlowe’s observation. Yet Marlowe at some point or another is either drawn to them, or speaks of their bodies in a longing way. Does this say something about Marlowe's character? Is he drawn to these women because he can relate to them, or because they are something unknown to him? - 2. Though we are reading the story through Marlowe’s perspective, we don’t really know too much about his character. Is this Marlowe’s way of keeping an image of mysterious, tough, and masculine, or is it a cover-up for weakness?
