Viewing the different archetypes, comparing two archetypes in two epics read this semester, as well as digging deeper into the Jezebel archetype has given me a new appreciation for this class as well as epic narratives and their respected archetypes.
Over the years, the Jezebel archetype has gone from negative to positive. At one time, the fact that women had to use their looks and sexuality to get what they want was frowned upon because it wasn’t morally correct. During those times, it was morally correct to use intelligence and wisdom to conquer whatever task that came one’s way. In contemporary literature, movies, etc, it is accepted to use their physical appearance and sexuality to get exactly what women want as well as to destroy those that are in their paths of getting to it.
