The lathly lady archetype can be found in sagas, legends, myths and fairy tales from all over the world and throughout time. The archetype involves a transformation present in all versions - ugly, old hag, transforming into a beautiful, young woman. Through transformation she reveals her true self, tricking readers and characters alike. Kirsten Dresker, EWU English literature graduate student, discusses how the loathly lady sneaks into new worlds as a trickster, transforms the thoughts of readers, and pushes boundaries of reality. Presented by EWU Women’s Studies Center.
