Examine how Ian McEwan Examines Sexual Boundaries in his novel Atonement
McEwan introduces sexual boundaries in Part One of his novel Atonement. Sexual boundaries are encountered between various characters in the novel and left for the reader to decipher in the case of Lola Quincey and Paul Marshall. On the other hand, the relationship between Robbie Turner and Cecilia Tallis is explored more explicitly and also involves the class gap between Robbie and the Tallis family. A variety of techniques are used to develop these boundaries, predominantly imagery, plot, description, and subtext.
