Description

Feminist Perspective of Toni Morrison’s God Help the Child through an Ovidian lens. In my essay I discuss the idea that male authors use abuse, rape, and in the case in Ovid’s Metamorphoses transformation to silence the female character, however Toni Morrison as a female writer uses abuse, rape, and transformation to create the idea of the “New Women” a women who is self aware. Much like the phoenix the women is reborn.
