Antigone, Feminist Analysis, Male and Female Characters, Muslim Identity, Word Level


The main aim of this paper is to analyze linguistic attributes by applying feminist stylistic approach on the selected text. This research attempts to highlight whether the image being portrayed is positive or not. Due to the British's intense racial and anti-Muslim attitudes, the characters are constantly rejected identification, and Aneeka intentionally reverts towards a more protective personality. She is in a relationship; however, she is a devout supporter of Parvaiz Pasha who remained a committed extremist as a result of his religious responsibilities and rites. The purpose of this research is to analyze the gender-specific word phrases/ sentences in the novel Home Fire. The goal of this study is to determine whether female's work is stylistically distinct from men's work, or maybe it is simply a variation from the trend. When we come to the destiny of women, it does not matter where they belong to: East or West. Cultures change, places change, rituals and beliefs vary, but one thing remains constant: the community's attitude toward females. Females, on the other hand, will either be deserted or protagonists, depending on their inner courage. Antigen’s intellectual influence infects and informs not only all characters, but also the rhythm and opinion of the play. Shamsie’s maintains Sophocles’ trend in bringing a woman with problems, Isma a British Muslim of Pakistani living in modern World.
