This short story can be viewed through a “rite of passage” narrative. Sylvia’s innocence is certainly challanged with the encounter of a tall young man with a gun. Her “woman’s heart, asleep in the child” is vaguely thrilled by the dream of love.
Could this be an invitation for her to step into the adult world, although to do so would abandon her carefree innocence?Gender roles are clearly defined here, the dominite male hunter and pure female (prey) in an idyllic natural setting.
An english dictionary says a love story is one whose central interest is a love relationship. Is this a love story?
