Bernice Bobs Her Hair Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- What comment do you think Fitzgerald is making about youth culture?
- What is the significance of Bernice's last utterance – "Scalp the selfish thing"?
- How do you think Fitzgerald defines womanhood and femininity in this story? Are these concepts definable at all?
- Can you envision any version of this story that could involve male instead of female main characters, or is the tale necessarily tied to women? Why or why not?
