Most romance readers are women, and naturally, they want to see themselves reflected in their choice of reading. That desire for reflection doesn’t mean that every heroine has to be straight from everyday life (even everyday life in, say, the s); however, the heroine does have to feel real and be interesting and emotionally complex enough to keep the .

The implementation of awards such as the International Prize for Arabic Fiction has also done much to raise the profile of Arabic novels, and to facilitate.   Lee's book on racial inequality in the American South of the s is probably the most-read book in American literature, and for good reason. The Pulitzer Prize-winner deals with heavy issues, yet as seen through the eyes of 6-year-old Scout Finch, it is a poignant reminder of the power of kindness and the quest for justice.

      The book spans some years, which Orlando watches with interest, the world changing while she stays the same, or mostly the same — unaffected by the constraints of time, gender, or society.   These famous literary heroes, heroines, and villains are some of the best fictional characters ever created! They're well developed, memorable, and inspiring. (The heroes and heroines, that is. The villains are wonderfully awful!) On September 1st, I added another birthday to my collection. It's been my tradition for the past few birthdays to publish a 'just for fun' list .

The idealization of the hero, however, is an outgrowth of the more primary conception of the god. Catherine from Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë Heathcliff is commonly cited as one of literature’s famous anti-heroes, but a fierce anti-heroine in the story is often ignored. In this dark romance of impossible love, Catherine is self-possessed, argumentative, and sometimes cruel.

Sedgwick, Grey and early feminist approaches to the genre. Though male writers dominated the Western Romance genre during its early iteration, female writers like Catharine Sedgwick had success too. Sedgwick is best known for her novel Hope Leslie () and its experimentation with the popular form.

The heroine's part in the plot is to give up herself. I know that this is a common device in Western Literature. I studied it plenty in grad school. "Das Ewig-Weibliche zieht uns hinan" was a quote I learned early on, from Goethe.

It's from his play Faust, and is about the eternal feminine that leads men to a higher plane. The western story, in its most usual forms, represents the American version of the ever appealing oldest of man’s legends about himself, that of the sun-god hero, the all-conquering valiant who strides through dangers undaunted, righting wrongs, defeating villains, rescuing the fair and the weak and the helpless — and the western story does this [ ].
