WOMEN IN MODERN LITERATURE – Portrayed by MEN writers#2


As I have been discussing the modern period from my last post, lets see about that briefly. The English modern period was marked by sudden and unexpected breaks with traditional ways of viewing and interacting with the world. The English Modern Literature started from the later 19th century, after from middle of the Enlightenment age. From the Enlightenment age, the people were started to question for the reason. Women at that time often started questioning their roles in society.

It is impossible for a male writer to write as a female protagonist. Sometimes male author boasts in writing female perceptive. But if women writers write about women, there would be a chance of accuracy in their writing. This happens in both sides, maybe when a woman writer writes about men she too has to struggle through it to give a perfect sketch. In every age, portraying women with or as a sexual figure was never changed. Most of the time in every age male writers as an opposite gender they write about the physics of women, maybe they thought that would help them to sell more books. Portraying women sexually have never changed.
