I have been enthusiastic about choosing Atalanta as my favorite hero especially in the age where different conglomerate of movements and ideologies are reigning, feminism included and since I consider myself as a postmodern feminist, I only think it befitting for me to choose her as my favorite hero. Atalanta represents the contradictory of the Old age’s idea of what a woman is or what a woman is supposed to be. She is strong and way beyond her society’s standard of what a woman is. She is, for me, aside from Artemis is one of the earliest Feminist in history and that’s why I liked her. Also, her indifference towards love or marriage is also one of the reasons why I liked her. I am not entirely antagonizing the idea of love or marriage but her lack of interest in the subject also satisfies one of my beliefs that the world is not black and white and that dependence on love, at least romantically speaking is not the only thing we can elicit happiness from, though this would be all forgotten once the right time comes for us younger people. What I’m trying to say is that Atalanta is an exemplary model to the youth of today who, some, instead of striving hard to find oneself are having themselves thrown into another’s arms in the false pretense of falling in love, which is really not that simple. Some of today’s youth are then establishing a bad habit of relying on another person to support oneself. These, then are succeeded by bad results of unintelligible and impulsive decisions of the heart just like the idea from Atonement’s Briony Tallis. In her play, it is mentioned that, “Love which did not build a foundation of good sense was doomed”. Aside from that fact stated above, I liked her, too because she is very brave, undaunted by the adversities her dangerous environment offers. During The Great Hunt for the Calydonian Boar, she fought hard among other men who didn’t deem her fit to hunt with them. She stood up by her conviction when other men didn’t want her to hunt with them. She didn’t just yield to others demand despite the existing stigmas about women during her time. These are some of the reasons why I chose Atalanta as my favorite hero.
