In contrast, Scout’s father in To Kill a Mockingbird is a completely different character. He is a very calm and rational person.
His femininity is derived from his “docility,” “humanity,” and “tenderness of heart” drawn from his childhood along with his failures as a man (No children, no employment) as Bliss mentions. Bliss goes on to suggest that the narrator oppresses this femininity with violent actions in which ultimately leads to the death of his two cats and wife. Upon the discovering of his wife’s body by the police Bliss states that the narrator felt a “veneer of masculinity” as he had acted “un-quivered” by the events but went on to be emasculated as the body is discovered. When the narrator “swoons” this the ultimate degree of femininity, as Bliss states. Bliss’s argument is well presented, thorough, and very psychologically in-depth.
