Re: Rebecca and Gender Roles

Hello Robyn!

It would definitely be intriguing if the genders were swapped in this novel. It would probably tell a really different story, from Maxim de Winter down to Ms. Van Hopper. This would have been risky for its reveal in 1938. But all Gothic literature is a bit risky anyway.
