Prodigal Summer Paper Prewrite

I will write my paper on the predator prey relationships in the novel Prodigal Summer as well as in Hyde's interpretation, specifically focusing on the fact that the trickster is one step ahead of the prey. I will analyze who "wears the pants" in each relationship, and how the role of women as continuing the species or picking up the projects left by men is a fundamental principle in ecology.

Also, the idea of scabs creating appetite has caught my attention. Is it possible that each character's development arises from overcoming their own woundedness and their hunger for a normal/better life is caused by their personal tragedies/incompleteness?
