Feminist Theory Considers
how portrayal of female characters reinforces or undermines sexual stereotypes.
This poem represents a
negative attitude towards woman in my mind because it is constantly referring to the cow as a “She”. Cows can
be male or female, but this poem was written to express the cow as a female who escapes and goes on an apple eating adventure.
Also by calling the cow a she it gives the cow a human like quality, making use of the personification technique we discussed
in class. While not negative in its entirety, this poem chose to gender identify the cow as a female instead of just a cow.
