In simple terms, Mario Puzo has kept the image of the epic hero, especially, when considering the relationship that is apparent in the heroes’ thirstiness for revenge, and ultimately their passion for glory and pride. Under revenge, both Achilles and Michael Corleone restore their pride through murder, one among his army and the other among the famous New York families.

However, we see that law and order is absent in Puzo’s novel, it is instead a world driven by chaos and social disobedience.

While women remained conservative and subservient, this novel roused the spirit of feminism which led to the change in women’s social status by the end of the nineteenth century.
