Why not C?

C looks perfectly correct to me b/c it recaps the ideas mentioned in the passage. Why is it wrong?Thank you so much!

I think the main issue with it is the "equally male and female" part. I think we have support for the idea that she views the central themes of poetry as neither male nor female, but universal. I think to say that they are equally male and female would include gendered elements that relate to both men and women, but to say that it is neither male nor female would be to say that it speaks to themes that are universal and not gendered. This latter understanding I think is closer to the passage.

I will add that c is very tempting, and I didn't hate it at all- this is one that I think gets easier to eliminate after reading D.
