Fantasy, Feminism, and The Wheel of Time

herenya-sedai:

I’ll be the first to say that Robert Jordan, rest his soul, had some pretty weird sexual politics. From his work, he seemed to firmly believe that men and women could never truly understand each other. Many of his female protagonists are varying shades of shrill, bratty, vindictive, pushy know-it-alls, about whom the boys constantly moan and whine in their inability to understand them. There’s been a lot of discussion in the YA community about unlikeable characters and debate about whether or not a female protagonist needs to be likeable (though the definition of what is unlikeable is often subject to debate). For me, when I was reading The Wheel of Time in my teens and early twenties, characters like Elayne and Nynaeve were as frustrating and unlikeable as they came.  Katsa? Katniss? Sansa? Cersei? They don’t hold a candle to the burning hatred I felt for these women, but they’ve also never managed to capture my admiration in the same way. And you know what? Looking back, they’re awesome.

The presence of female characters is something I really appreciate about The Wheel of Time. I love that they’re important, different, flawed. The extent of their presence particularly struck me during a chapter about the Aes Sedai: so many conversations that passed the Bechdel test and they were all about politics

(I view some, if not all, of the misunderstanding between genders in WOT to be due to the characters’ cultural and historical contexts. A lot of the characters have very strong culturally ingrained expectations about gender roles and relationships - which causes confusion for characters who come from different cultural backgrounds, but also shapes how many characters talk to those of the opposite gender. And some of those cultural expectations are in response to saidin being tainted and what this means for men who can channel.

However, the series also highlights how problematic this all is, and how much better it is when everyone communicates and works together.)

EYES IN BOOKS:

Blue eyes: His blue eyes were like the sea, mild, but unpredictable. As the blue winter sky and the ocean in the spring. His eyes were flawless just like the sky.
Green eyes: The green color of the trees of the Amazon are nothing compared with the green of her eyes. They are bright and beautiful, both as a clover in autumn.
Grey eyes: His eyes were so amazing. Like the moon in the middle of the night. They make me wanna hug him and tell him that all will be alright.
Brown eyes: He has nice brown eyes.
