Comparison study examining intersecting themes such as the destructive nature of war, rejuvenating power of ancient tradition and local landscapes, and gendered responses to competition. Picard highlights differences in the representation of competition, concluding that the works “cooperatively struggle to engender strategies for surviving in dangerously competitive worlds.”
