Reading Journal #2 Thomas Quinn

One moment that really stuck with me was when Lije’s wife, Jesse, came clean about her meetings with the Environmentalists.  She was so bitter about Baley stripping her name of any power she thought that it held, so she went behind his back.  Jezebel is a name associated with “painted lady’s” in the Bible, or prostitutes.  Her final act of getting made up before leaving the station showed her indignation as a woman of status (higher up than most) in the face of her self-exposition.  She may have went behind Baley’s back because he made her feel trapped and stripped of power; but in the end she kept her role as a faithful wife.
