Extracts from this document...


Compare the relationships between Men and Women in the two Stories As we read through the novel 'Tony Kytes' (The Arch Deceiver) we got the impression that Tony Kytes is an attractive young man, iresstible to young woman. Toney is especially attractive to Milly Richards to whom he is going to marry. The text also leads us to believe that Toney is a irresponsible man and also very dangerous in situations that involves women an example on this is when the wagon is left with all the female characters (Milly Richards, Unity Sallet, and Hannah Jolliver) on bored when suddenly they lose control and the wagon crashes.
