GENDER ROLES AND HERO MYTHS: CAN GENDER INEQUALITY EVER BE JUSTIFIED
This paper investigates the reason behind the distinct gender differences found in classical literature and concludes that prominent gender inequality prevalent in such works is justifiable. The paper tends to the likenesses and contrasts among male and female jobs in well-known writing, explicitly on their individual encounters along the "Legend's Journey", and their ensuing impact on future portrayals of sex. Western writing centers basically around men generally going about as the hero, and managing the implications and obligations that encompass resulting jobs. This exploration, in any case, exhibits the significance of their female partners, who, however, their parts may have little impact on crafted by writing themselves, are depicted in a way that incredibly impacts their place and portrayal in the public eye. This paper explains how sexual orientation contrasts in the public eye impact the manner in which people are depicted in writing, and proposes the inverse also: the depiction of people in writing influence sexual orientation contrasts in the public arena. By first dissecting characters of both genders from two of the most notable works of art—the Odyssey and Paradise Lost—we reach inferences regarding the normal generalizations of sexual orientations in writing.
