From the one hand, all artistic creations could fall under the term fantasy as long as they require some creativity, from the other hand, only pieces related to certain imaginary worlds could make the claim. To save Icewind Dale, Drizzt must embark on an epic quest, joining forces with a young barbarian, a grizzled dwarf warrior and his adopted human daughter. The storyline is enormous and intriguing! For it to be a real moral test, there must be a valid temptation. For example, in one scene she explains to Matthews that 119 Women in Science Fiction and Fantasy Volume 1: Overviews she will not be pushed around by him and that he "underestimates her ability to help in a crisis."

Postwar politi- cians assumed that National Defense Education funds would be spent in con- ventionally gendered ways and that women would be trained to teach math and science to children while men pursued graduate degrees and prepared for the critical work of national defense.

Trisha McFarland, a nine-year- old lost in the woods of New Hamp- shire in The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon (1999), draws her strength by imagining her favorite pitcher assisting her.

Other critics such as Angela Leighton wondered about the very concept of the female poet — if women rejected the Romantic ideal of the solitary, self- centered, revolutionary genius, what did they put in its place?

Those that do, often show a process prefigured by uneasy alliances or the need to inte- grate and understand a race or society. The recogni- tion that other individuals are subjects in their own right allows a relationship between two or more equal subjects — whether female and male, female and female, or male and male — to strengthen the protagonist's heroic de- velopment and sense of responsibility to others.
