Sadly, this isn't an essay on it, rather, a plead for help on the topic. I'm studying Literature for my A-levels, so when the opportunity to make a paper on feminism based on any book I wished, you can perhaps comprehend why I jumped on A Song of Ice and Fire.
A patriarchal world filled with complex and diverse female characters? It's perfect! Maybe there is a better and simpler book to review, but I've always been a firm believer of enjoying the subject at hand. I know I will enjoy writing this coursework very much.
The character I want to focus on is Cersei. If you guys have any objections, please tell me. The reason for Cersei over (what could be considered the *main* female character, Dany) is that I find her a far more interesting character, and by that, I mean she hardly falls into any stereotype. She can be strong, cowardly, protective, selfless, selfish etc... That ebing said, so are all the ASOIAF characters, but I'd like to use her as my main example.
The way I'll tackle this is through using her as the centrepeice and then using the other gal's of the Westeros to compare and contrast etc...
So, what I'd like to ask is this: are there any things I should focus on more than others? Should there be things I should avoid? Are there any 'golden nuggets' hidden in there that I might have missed? Which book I should focus on? (I was thinking AFFC) and the rest of the chant! (Planescape: Torment reference!!!!)
I'd like to apologise in advance for any spelling mistakes or grammar errors. This is the first of January and my head is dizzy, I'm tired and my cock is sore.
Oh, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!! :-)
