This chapter discusses Women in Love, which urges readers into a repeated strategy; they are invited to take a firm interpretive position and then to backtrack on it. It also argues that the rhetorical strategies shape and encourage interpretive perspectives on gender roles, in particular masculinity, which are not expressed by the characters of the novel.

Keywords: Women in Love; interpretive position; rhetorical strategies; perspectives; gender roles; masculinity
