Abstract [en]

In Western society, appearance has become constricted to an extent where everybody looks more or less the same, i.e. Western culture has become a culture where beauty is something very standardized. Jeanette Winterson’s The Stone Gods discusses the subjects of body and perfection by creating a civilization where our society's ideals of body and beauty are given an extreme form. This essay discusses The Stone Gods and the society that it depicts from a cultural perspective concentrating on the social aspects of beauty and body, and examine how narrowed ideals affect the people, who live in the shadow of the norms, and moreover how they affect the society as a whole in the novel.
