Summary
Defined as genealogies, Faulkner’s Snopes trilogy (The Hamlet, The Town, The Mansion) and Krleža’s Glembay trilogy (Gospoda Glembajevi, U agoniji, Leda), together with corresponding short stories and novels, share a whole array of common characteristics. One of them is the stereotypical characterization of women characters. This point of view is justified by the appearance of Eula Varner Snopes as the ravished Southern belle and the rehabilitated Dixie Madonna and Charlotta Castelli-Glembay as the Nietzschean cat woman and femme fatale.
