In her essay, Hunt utilizes pornographic pamphlets involving Queen Marie Antoinette in order to analyze the attitudes of the French regarding gender roles, and in this way she questions the traditional interpretation of the French revolution as a period of immense change.

Overall, the sister is portrayed as the nemesis figure because she rewards Oochigaeskw for all her good intentions and later punishes Oochigaeskw’s older sisters for being immoral. When she is being introduced, Nowlan quickly states that she has two sisters who are quite abusive. As stated in her introduction, “The two older girls considered the youngest a great nuisance and shamefully mistreated her; kicking and cuffing her about and burning her hands and face intentionally.” The two older girls appear to be similar in character to the stepsisters of Cinderella.

The allure of ruling a grand and supreme country is something one can not evade; Russia is at the top of the list when it comes to that grandeur.
