This feminist interpretation of the Odyssey really gives an authentic, human voice to Penelope and focuses on the patriarchal culture that drives this time period and the time of Odysseus. The most fascinating aspect for me was other underrepresented characters finally getting a voice even if they would never receive justice. Even today, there is no place for these women. This calming read will cause you to question the Odyssey, the morals it represents, and our morals today. I highly recommend you read it.
