Male Characters in Margaret Atwood’s Writings. A Discussion


Academic Paper, 2021

16 Pages


Abstract or Introduction

When reading Margaret Atwood’s works, one could easily feel disturbed by her presentation of certain male characters.
After discussing Atwood’s feminism and summing up Atwood’s views on male characters, this essay will look at male characters in her works. It will show that her feminism is not critical of men in general, but only intends to subvert a certain kind of masculinity.

In" Power Politics" and "Bodily Harm", Atwood displays a heavy pessimism because she considers men as mere agents of oppression and violence. And yet, Atwood’s presentation of male characters seems to have evolved over time and moved to a broader spectrum, especially in her more recent works.
