Questions (Natural Born Celebrities)

Choose one interrogations:

  1. On p. 209, Schmid argues that one of the ways we can bung audiences from warranting following a while serial killers is to use their abused or unnatural childhood to detached them from our own experiences. How does this effect in Perfume? Repast the esthetic in Schmid's provision to the film/novel we viewed in this part?

How does this evidence enact out in Perfume?
  3. Throughout this abstruse provision, Schmid argues that frequently the murderers sketch a dread or grudge of women as inducement for their killing. How does Perfume change or wrest Schmid's evidence?
