Perspective of Gender Roles in Margaret Atwood’s The Penelopiad
|The most actively and purposefully practiced agenda for ages has been based on mythical patterns and beliefs, which are useful in encapsulating and hiding the reality of gender. Likewise, feminist writers and philosophers have investigated the causes, methods, and effects of the longstanding systemic oppression of women through myths. This project concentrates on how modern female writers have reconstructed gender identities to benefit women. The Penelopiad, a 2005 novella by Margaret Atwood defies the conventional ideas of femininity by depicting a variety of strong female characters. The patriarchal dominance that accuses this sensitive gender of passivity and the pervasive misrepresentation of women in mythologies served as the main sources of inspiration for this work. Therefore, this project shows how Atwood reconstructs gender identities in The Penelopiad. This work is examined in this research to see what gender roles the patriarchal Greek culture has assigned to both men and women.
