R. S. Bonfiglioli “Penelope no longer lives here.”
The essence of the absence of shadow in the heart.
In Russia you can buy this book in the online store of the publishing house "Fairy Tale and Myth ".
Famous for her legendary fidelity to her husband, in the context of ideas about the archetypal, Penelope represents the ideal of female behavior of the Homeric era.
But the theme of Penelope is much more complex than what Western historical and cultural stories of the patriarchal order put into it. Probably, her personal story was considered non-existent for too long, because it looked inconvenient and did not fit into the outline of the pathos context.
The author of the book tries to answer the question: did Penelope, as a woman, have her own story? How true is the dichotomy between her unshakable, peaceful expectation and the replays of Odysseus, filled with stormy activity?
