The meeting with the goddess also connects to the stage of temptation. However it’s not always the case. In The Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston, Fa Mulan falls into temptation to the point where the thought of her husband and son distract her from fulfilling her quest. She thinks about them so often that she gets caught off guard by the enemy and she doubts her abilities to fight. “However, if we approach women’s writing as centrally concerned not strictly with gender but with oppression, we can fully examine the conjuncture and relationship between female and ethnic identity.” Schueller, Malini. “Questioning Race and Gender Definitions: Dialogic Subversions in The Woman Warrior” Volume 31, No. 4 (1989) page. 421-437.
