At some points it was poetic and some of the illustrations were really gorgeous. At other times I felt like I was just reading a badly written mythological adaptation, the purpose of which seemed to be the objectification of women and the dehumanization of female sexuality.
Maybe I was reading into it too much. But am I the only one who noticed that when the jacket was naming off women to Orfi, that the black woman was not given a name pg 95? All the others, although presented simply as sexual objects, were at least given the privilege of a name.
The black woman is simply referred to as "a black girl" not even "woman". The highly sexualized images to what purpose? The women here are presented as insatiable, one-dimensional, sexual objects who lust after the cool, level-headed Orfi. He wards off all their advances and continues to pursue Eura, a character as one-dimensional as all the other female characters. Throughout the book, male figures are shown clothed while every single female character is completely naked or only partially dressed.
Either way, I was disappointed by the depiction of women in this book. Female sexuality and sensuality can be portrayed explicitly without being disrespectful or dehumanizing.
