Example text

Is prohibited from engaging the sexual services of a white prostitute; thus, his disclosure reconstitutes the agreement to exchange itself as a theft. It is not that punishment because he can’t pay, but because he is black. The disclosure recasts the entire encounter as an interracial sexual act without consent or comprehension—a rape. (2004, 60) With this experience of using sex to violate Southern racial codes, Joe Christmas once again engages in the myth of the black rapist and chooses his next “victim”— Joanna Burden.

It becomes obvious that the act of rape has failed to achieve what it should have accomplished: the prescribed race and gender balance of the role of white and feminine for Joanna and the role of black and masculine for Joe Christmas. Thus, in playing out the story of rape repeatedly, and in participating in the courtship codes and the jealous lover’s tale with her rapist, Joanna Burden subverts the very myth of the black rapist. As the generator and the protagonist of her own rape narrative, she turns upside down the prescribed notions of race, class, and gender and sets out new rules for both of them.

In addition, “her reputation is protected by the pedestal’s shadow: she can use the image of white Southern womanhood to cloak her activities” (Widmaier 2000/2001, 25). Bobbie’s conduct also reveals the instability of the system of race segregation in the South: on the one hand, she intentionally takes part in the construction of the myth of the 32 2 Regional Faulkner: Faulkner and the South black rapist and discloses Joe Christmas’ identity when her reputation comes into question; on the other, she actively participates in the most dreaded Southern white male anxiety, in which white woman lusts for a black man’s body.
