How about Chandler's women as "Eve," the temptress? Having just worked through the Big Sleep again, Marlowe's saying women make him sick, I think his view of women is more of their basic human failure than a devil or saint thing. Because the Sternwood women are not really devils, and Silver Wig isn't a saint. Everything's in the mud.
