Abstract

This research paper intends to carry out a thorough analysis of gender roles in some of the poems from Lang Leav's collections "The Universe of Us," "Memories," and "Love and Misadventure." Using the masculine framework of Judith Butler, this analysis will be undertaken. The research seeks to show how Leav's work depicts, confirms, or defies the conventional norms and gender roles in particular to Butler's concepts of performativity, gender as a social construct and subversion of the binaries. Through careful analysis of the poetic dimension of Leav´s works, themes and characters, this study will provide a better understanding of contemporary gender relations and representations. Finally, this paper's importance lies in it's interdisciplinary approach, the reason it engages with modern cultural artifacts and the depth at which it uses literature and popular culture to interpret gender representations, agency, and social constructions.
