    Kindle Margaret Atwood ↠ The Penelopiad PDF/EPUB ↠ ↠ penelopiad free, The Penelopiad eBookOften I amuse myself by trying to imagine the ideas conversations or circumstances that led to the writing of certain books For example I think Philippa Gregory wrote The Other Boleyn Girl because she wanted to write a smutty romance novel disguised as history Shakespeare probably wrote The Taming of the Shrew because someone bet him he couldn't write a play where domestic abuse is interpreted as matrimonial devotion and Bette Green wrote Summer of My German Soldier specifically to torture 10th grade Madeline In the case of The Penelopiad I like to think that the idea for its creation came about in the mind of Margaret Atwood righ

    Kindle Margaret Atwood ↠ The Penelopiad PDF/EPUB ↠ ↠ penelopiad free, The Penelopiad eBookMargaret Atwood gives us a reworked reinterpretation of Homer's The Odyssey that lends itself rather well to our present day in its contemporary echoes of our MeToo movement today We have the abandoned for 20 years but faithful Penelope learning to manage the court in the absence of her philandering husband Numerous suitors come to court Penelope commands the twelve maids slaves in reality to be used and abused to deal with them The inherently flawed Odysseus spent the first 10 years fighting the Trojan War and the following 10 years having adventures having a riotous time before finally returning to Ithaca He is painted as a over hyped testerone fuelled hypocrite barely deserving of the saintly Penelope Odysseus orders the twelve maids to be murdered feeling they have bet

    Kindle Margaret Atwood ↠ The Penelopiad PDF/EPUB ↠ ↠ penelopiad free, The Penelopiad eBookThis was technically a reread but I couldn't remember the specific dates I read it the first time so I recorded this as a first time readSuch an enjoyable uick and surprising retelling of The Odyssey from Penelope's perspective Nearly everyone knows Odysseus smart witty promiscuous; tackles 1 too many mythical beasts over the decade he is missing on his return from The Trojan WarPenelope is sassy intelligent and than a little bit pissed off at her cousin Helen for causing this war and therefore preventing her husbands safe returnWe also get a new persepctive of Helen Usually she is seen as sweet beautiful obviously kind

    Kindle Margaret Atwood ↠ The Penelopiad PDF/EPUB ↠ ↠ penelopiad free, The Penelopiad eBookThe Penelopiad or The Ballad of the Dead MaidsThis has been my introduction to Atwood and I have to admit that I feel slightly underwhelmed I went in with high expectations wondering how Atwood will take the 'waiting widow' of The Odyssey and transform it into a full length novel Turns out that she mostly indulges in recapitulating the bulk of the original with a few wild theories and speculations thrown in as supposed rumors that Penelope has gleaned in the after lifeWhich brings me to how the story is constructed and this happens to be the high water mark for this novel Atwood starts with Penelope addressing us from the other side of River Styx reaching us through the mysterious sounds of the night and the barks and hoots of unseen animals Penelope has grown bold since her death and is no longer the meek woman we saw in the original but a bold one who doesn't mind sp

    Kindle Margaret Atwood ↠ The Penelopiad PDF/EPUB ↠ ↠ penelopiad free, The Penelopiad eBookThis was so beautifully written As someone who's fairly familiar with the myth of Penelope and Odysseus it was uite fascinating to see how a modern day writer would spin the story Atwood did this brilliantly I love stories that write from the perspective of the main character especially when the said character is looking back in hindsightVery creative

    Kindle Margaret Atwood ↠ The Penelopiad PDF/EPUB ↠ ↠ penelopiad free, The Penelopiad eBook35 A smart funny and feminist response to The Odyssey Atwood paints a full picture of Penelope’s perspective and shares it like a secret You can tell Atwood’s having fun here and part of that fun includes sprinkling in some bitterness and outrage to give the piece depth and meaning I use the word piece however because unlike Atwood’s Hag Seed based on The Tempest or Miller’s Song of Achilles based on The Iliad I can’t imagine anyone enjoying this work without having first read The Odyssey There are some great reveals towards the end that I found especially fun but it doesn’t have much of a story on its own It’s a uick read could be read in one day
