I'm doing a prize essay on explorations of gender in the past. I know Shakespeare loved to mess around with gender roles and the like, but I can't really find anything else that isn't a textbook, really. Any suggestions? Thank you!

It's not exactly 'in the past' but The Wasp Factory is a (very graphic) book which involves gender issues. I think there must be lots of classics, possibly those written by women, that explore ideas of gender, perhaps with crossdressing themes similar to those in Shakespeare. If you're really looking in the past there's a fair amount in the Odyssey with role reversal and similarly for lots of Greek plays (particularly thinking Euripides' Medea and Electra and Aeschylus' Agamemnon).

The Color Purple I think would be quite good for an exploration on gender
