Listener Questions:

  • What textual echoes can we find between John’s romantic overture to Jamie, and Geneva’s?
  • If we set aside the issues of consent, how does Jamie’s sexual encounter with Geneva reflect his encounter with Mary McNab?
  • Is there evidence in the text that Gabaldon is channeling classic novels during the Helwater chapters?
  • Excerpt your favorite single line from the reading, and share it!
