    “I bvielee that a hugely current (and recurring) theme in romance is redemption” but I have to admit that I haven’t read much by Blake apart from his poem about the tiger and the hymn version of “And did those feet.” I haven’t read Judith Butler, either.“I love it when a hero or heroine can sympathize with a villain”Looking back at the post I linked to earlier, which is about sin and redemption in romance, I noticed that I’d commented on villains. I wonder if, when they’re depicted as being utterly evil, they’re meant to be compared with a protagonist who seems bad (e.g. the tortured hero) in order to suggest that the latter is really still very redeemable.How do you feel about series in which the villain of one book becomes the hero of another? I suppose it partly depends quite how villainous a villain the character was to begin with.

    As a wrietr who’s put children in just about every book I’ve written and who also likes to write about flawed characters, I find this discussion fascinating. I have to say, I never particularly thought about children as representing innocence (though I can see the argument). I think one of the reasons I like to put children in books is that being parents or surrogate parents forces the characters to be grown ups, and I like reading about grown ups. Kids can also bring out different sides in characters (very much including nurturing, which goes to Pam’s argument). And they’re a great source of conflict in that protecting children is a strong motivation (which again goes to Pam’s point). I also just enjoy kids as characters.Now I have to ponder if I made Mélanie a mom to make her more sympathetic…
