Primary Instructor:

The course explores the appearance of female figures in mythological stories and their literary renditions. Primarily oriented towards the role women were assigned in Western literary tradition, but not strictly limited to it, the texts include Classical Greek, later literary appropriations of myths, as well as literary theory and film. An important departure from the specificity of the Greek literary setting will be made in the space dedicated to the occurrence of female figures in mythological and religious texts (e.g., the Fall of Eve) that almost completely defined the character of woman in literature. The final segment of the course consists of texts by women authors that apparently subvert the patriarchal mythology imposed on women and liberates women from myth.
