A Feminist Analysis of Snow, Fire, Sword

- Snow, Fire, Sword is an epic fantasy novel written by Sophie Masson. It tells about the quest of the main characters of the story, Dewi and Adi, for Snow, Fire, Sword which is the only thing that can save Jayangan from the terror of the Hantumu. While other novels of the same genre rarely portray the importance of women, this novel, on the contrary, shows the great value of women’s contribution to the success in the quest journey. The passivity, weakness, and little contribution of the male characters in the story (especially the main male character Adi), compared to the activeness, power, and great contribution of the female characters, make the main female character Dewi appear to be the h...   [tags: literary analysis, sophie masson]
