Fictional Portrayals of Women: William Faulkner Contrasted with Margaret Atwood
[
Send Me This Essay ]
A 5 page comparison of the portrayals of women found in William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying" and Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale". Observes that the characterization of women in "As I Lay Dying" differs significantly from that in "The Handmaid's Tale". While the women in Faulkner's book are presented as simpletons and immoral, Atwood's women are presented as highly intelligent despite the societal prohibitions for being so and highly moral despite the forced circumstances of their lives. Both portrayals, however, are replete with stereotypical representations of women. In "The Handmaid's Tale", however, we are reassured that women are not shallow, not by nature promiscuous, despite the societal circumstances in which they may be forced to live.

Indeed, as much as America, itself, is a melting pot of diversity within a cultural concern, so too has this considerable diversity represented a significant aspect of its stronghold in the literary world.
