Mujer y Mitología Clásica en la Poesía de Claribel Alegría

In classical mythology, women are not portrayed as heroines or even main characters, but support for the men. Five women from classical mythology in particular, Pandora, Ariadne, Penelope, Circe and Galatea, do not even have their own identity and are defined by their relationship with a man. Recently, however, women writers have given these women a voice. Claribel Alegria, a famous Nicaraguan writer, wrote poems about these five women from their own perspective, giving them a voice and their own identity, separate from men.
