Cop-outs’ logically extend to any work of fiction in which a spirited young girl falls in love, marries, and loses the spirit she once had. This is an important reminder that a book cannot be evaluated for its representation or construal of gender in total on the basis of, say, chapter 11 (although there may be a key episode of interest in chapter 11). There are important precedents here: three 19th century works of fiction with women protagonists who were unhappy with and transgressed expected (gendered) social boundaries – but, in the end, died (Emma Bovary, Anna Karenina, Hedda Gabler) (see also Mills, 1995; Russ, 1984).
Z Caveat 4: agency Despite socialization, identity attribution and positioning by others (as well as possible biological influences), I would argue that we always also have a measure of ‘agency’3, are never ‘deterministically’ made into this or that sort of person, and are rarely forced to behave, speak or write in certain ways with no room for manoeuvre. This is because agency includes resistance to positioning or even coercion, if only in very small ways. These might include silence, non-cooperation, or even being unenthusiastic.
Categories may be deductively pre-decided (for example, occupational roles of adults in children’s fiction), or decided inductively after familiarization with the text(s) in question (for example, the analyst might after reading become aware of recurring references to particular possessions associated with boys and with girls). In either case, a coding scheme incorporating the different categories needs to be developed (see also Cohen, Manion and Morrison, 2007; Silverman, 2004; Taylor, 2003; Mason, 2002).
