For Penelope, wife of Ulysses, maintaining a kingdom while her husband was at the end of the battles of the Trojan War was not a simple matter.Already aggrieved that he had been lured because of the shocking behavior of his beautiful cousin Helen, Penelope must raise his rebellious son, facing down scandalous rumors and keep more than a hundred lewd, greedy and bloodthirsty contenders for the bay.And then, when Ulysses finally comes back and kills the murderer suitors, he brutally blocks out Penelope twelve beloved companionship ladiesWhat were his motivations?And what Penelope really lived up to.Acclaimed by critics during its first publication as part of the Canongate Myth of the series, and after the success of the adaptation by the CBC, this new edition of La Penelopiad sees Margaret Atwood give modern Penelope, witty and vocal to tell her side of the story, and set the clock for good.
