Religion and Faith (9)

How are religion and faith represented in the novel? Point to specific examples to support your conclusions.

Religion and Faith is represented throughout the novel, but in many ways it contradicts itself. Mrs. Bellmont a woman who claims to be a woman of faith, but treats Frado like she is scum to me she’s a hypocrite because how can she be a woman of faith, but filled with so much rage and bitterness. We see how James and Aunt Abby trying to address Mrs. Bellmont, but fail to change and follow the bible. We see Frado crying out to God for making her the way she is, there is the belief of religion and the faith shown throughout the different characters. However, Wilson’s novel represents the hypocrites of a faith. They talk the talk, but don’t act.
