Glendon Swarthout's novel the Homesman (1988) is made into a movie in 2014 and draws attention to the lives of the frontier women in USA in 1850s. It raises the question of where and when one's identity and sense of self is shattered and broken; that is the border for most of the frontier women to lose their mind and their sanity. In other words, what is the border between sanity and insanity; what drives women into madness in the New Continent and what should be done to improve the life standards of the frontier women to preserve their identity and integrity is questioned in the Homesman (2014). Thus, “the border(s) of (in)sanity&the female identity” will be explored with regard to the female characters in the Homesman (2014).
