The Odyssey is an epic romp just chock full of antiquated gender roles—which is why it’s the perfect candidate for a gender-swapped update.
In the original, Odysseus is the archetype of masculinity because he’s a smart, sexy war hero. Penelope is the ideal woman because she stays faithful to him for twenty years. I want to read a version where the woman goes off and fights sea monsters while her husband stays home and is like “LADIES, I’LL MARRY ONE OF YOU JUST AS SOON AS I FINISH WEAVING THIS SHROUD. I KNOW I’M A HOT COMMODITY, BUT PLEASE BE PATIENT, I’M STILL NOT OVER THE DEATH OF MY COOL WARRIOR WIFE.”
