dc.description.abstractIn this thesis, I will be exploring the way that gender influences the writing of the characters in the Legend of Zelda series and what effects that it has on the portrayal of those characters and the stories they are a part of. I will examine some of the main characters such as Link, Princess Zelda, and Impa in order to analyze the ways in which gender expression affects their characterization in various installments of the Zelda series, including The Legend of Zelda, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
