MonkeyNotes-The Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston
Conflict

Protagonist

Maxine, a second generation Chinese-American, struggles with
her split nationality and with her female gender.

Antagonist

Brave Orchid is the antagonist for much of the memoirs, but
only because she personifies the Chinese heritage with which
Maxine struggles.

Climax

Maxine confronts her mother, Brave Orchid, and accuses her of
all the difficulties of being born
Chinese-American.



Outcome

The memoirs end in comedy, for Maxine reconciles with her
mother and her heritage and is
able to weave together an identity rich both in Chinese heritage
and new American values.
