But taking Jefferson's quote out of the context of her 2004 piece which critiques and compares the use of child narrators in drama is obscuring her intentions. She's saying in part that the child narrator is responsible for a lack of dimension in Caroline's character, not necessarily because her creator is a white cis male. That said, any artist that forefronts politics in their work is bound to be re-interprested by a new generation. Greater artists than Kushner and Tesori have been buried by a refocusing of what matters politically and aesthetically.
