4. In this novel, power is held more by women. Kesey implies that women of this time would do evil things to maintain their role of power. For example, Billy Bibbit's mother tells him he can go to college and have a girlfriend when he is older and treats him like a child. We see how this affects Billy on page 137, when Nurse says “I can’t wipe the razor-blade scars off your wrists or the cigarette burns off the back of your hands.
This goal is often achieved through the deliberate cutting from a country-life action with its city-life equivalent. Notably, Lem’s mother cuts freshly baked bread at the table for the family. The next shot is in Kate’s diner, where an automated bread slicer makes quick work of an entire loaf. Through juxtaposing these thematically similar shots, City Girl highlights the disconnect between city living and the production of goods. In addition, Murnau cuts back and forth between Lem’s father’s scrawled math of the optimal price to sell wheat and the impersonal and cruel truth of the stock exchange.

As we read the novel, we experience their different possibilities towards femininity, and we see a range of different possibilities for integrating women into society. Because the novel was written in the mid-nineteenth century, historical context places limits on what women can do.

To further support my point the story reaches a comical climax in the dinner scene, in which the detectives eat the cooked lamb’s leg and discuss the opportunity of finding the blunt tool used to kill poor Patrick. Subsequently the action of the story begins to rise as Mary patently waits for her husband to return and continues to increase as it becomes clear that he is preparing to start the matter of divorce.
