800-word paper that analyzes how gender—masculinities and
femininities—is portrayed in TheOdyssey. One way to
approach this assignment is to consider how male characters think and
speak about female characters (human and/or divine). How do the males
treat female characters? How do the female characters treat the males?
What patterns emerge? Based on those patterns, can you identify models
of femininities and masculinities in TheOdyssey? In other words, are particular behaviors, conditions, or roles associated with men but not women and vice versa?
Second, analyze at least two major male characters. What does this
reveal? Now carefully consider two female figures (human and/or
divine). How are they represented? Using the data that you gathered,
describe what the ideal ancient Greek woman and man might have been
like. Next, decide if any of the female and male characters violate
rules that apply to women's and men's behavior and, in so doing, offer
the audience negative models of gender. Reflect on The Odyssey’s
ending—who wins and loses and why? What do the ultimate fates of the
female and male characters reveal about ancient Greeks’ ideas about
