The only female character is Miranda who is shown to be submissive and dependent o her father and later her husband Ferdinand. The only utility she has is a pawn in a game of power. She is expected to be compassionate, caring and obedient to every whim of her masculine overlords. A central theme of purity or chastity of women is also interwoven in the story. She is shown to be manipulable and impressionable by men. Apart from Miranda, feminine roles are played by Goddesses like Juno, Ceres and nymphs who do not have great impact on the plot. 1 Login to Reply Share Share Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
