A Woman Of Virtue: ...Everyone Knows There Is No Such Thing As A Virtuous Woman Or Honourable Man

 
9781434845412: A Woman Of Virtue: ...Everyone Knows There Is No Such Thing As A Virtuous Woman Or Honourable Man

Beauty cannot be transmitted for posterity in the terms of each respective era without losing its essence. A 1920s postcard of an attractive femme fatale, now utterly comical to us, bears adequate proof. Thus, the only reason why we still feel awestruck by Homer's portrait of Helen is because her beauty has been embossed on the effects of her presence rather than on detailed attributes of her face or body...Beauty is Virtue...so, it goes without saying, the terms under which I want to impart Beauty and make her real do not fall under the volatility of measurements - breasts, waist and hips...and certainly ignore the socially imposed limit of gender morality. Is our heroine a virtuous woman? Is our hero a depraved pursuer? Ultimately, the answer to such questions is one of taste; instead, I hope to succeed in motivating you to question and reinvent Beauty and Virtue itself...
