A Radical Proposal

"A developed myth has its own form, its own structure, its own expectations and values, its own cues to nudge the reader.  When so much of the basic work has already been done, the artist may give the myth its final realization, or stand it on its head."

--- Joanna Russ, What Can a Heroine Do? Or Why Women Can't Write, in Images of Women in Fiction.
