Based on those patterns, can you identify models of femininities and masculinities in Odyssey? In other words, are particular behaviors, conditions, or roles associated with men but not women and vice versa?

The major writing assignment for this week is to compose a 600- to 800-word

 

paper that analyzes how gender—masculinities and femininity€”is portrayed in

 

Odyssey. 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 Odyssey? 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

 

ending—who wins and loses and why? What do the ultimate fates of the female and

 

male characters reveal about ancient Greeks’ ideas about gender?

 

simply answer all these questions in order to develop your

 

paper. These questions are designed to catalyze critical thinking, and you

 

should use the writing process described in the online lectures to compose

 

your essay
