Abstract

Carol Ann Duffy's poem "Penelope" ... is just one example of a long tradition of receptions of Penelope, stretching from Homer to the present day. Although this chapter cannot provide a detailed account of this reception history, it is useful to be aware of how regularly Penelope has been thrust centre-stage and given a voice. Writers and artists have dissected her, examined her motives, queried her actions and emotions, and retold her story in her (their) own words.
