Lisbeth Salander—Avenging Female Fury

Lecture no. 23 from the course: Heroes and Legends: The Most Influential Characters of Literature

Lisbeth Salander—Avenging Female Fury

Taught by Professor Thomas A. Shippey | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Lisbeth Salander, the heroine from the popular Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, seems to be an original character well suited to our times—hip, ingenious, computer savvy. But as you’ll discover in this lecture, her character also has echoes of ancient myths, from the Greek Furies to the Scandinavian Valkyries.
