Fictional characters I'd like to meet.
I decided to narrow this to ten female characters I'd like to meet. Can you figure out in what story they're from?
1. Cassandra, to ask her about always knowing what's going to happen and not being taken seriously.
2. Penelope, was Odysseus worth waiting for twenty years?
3. Shahrazad, ask her to tell me more stories.
4. Dulcinea del Taboso, what it's like to be loved by a lunatic?
5. Lessa, what's it like to talk to dragons?
6. Mina, now you're not a vampire, what's next?
7. Katerina, where you really tamed?
8. Ophelia, was suicide really your only option?
9. Lisa Kelly, can I be your slave?
10. Peggy Olsen, was it worth it to succeed in a man's world?
What a great list!
Great list and great idea for a list. I could name them all except the last two Lisa Kelly and Peggy Olsen.
Lisa Kelly from Exit to Eden, by Anne Rice. Peggy Olsen from Mad Men.
ah... I got all the Shakespeare references. Thanks for the heads up about the last two!
Very nice. I only got two, so there we go. :-)
You're welcome, Judy.
Better luck next time, Megan.
Casandra from the Iliad. Penelope from the Odyssey. Shahrazad from the Arabian Nights. Dulcinea from Don Quixote. Lessa from Dragon Flight. Mina from Dracula. Katerina from Taming of the Shrew. Ophelia from Hamlet. Already answered 9 & 10.
I agree on Mina Harker. I enjoyed the book more than I thought I would.
