Penélopes irlandesas: reescrituras del mito en la "Trilogía de las Midlands" y "Penélope"

María del Mar González Chacón

Resumen


Este artículo estudia la relación entre el mito de Penélope, la Trilogía de las Midlands de Marina Carr y la obra Penelope de Enda Walsh. El análisis de la construcción de las Penelopes de Marina Carr sirve para abordar cuestiones acerca de la influencia de la espera en la vida de estas mujeres, así como los diferentes tipos de inmovilización que afectan a su independencia. En segundo término, la representación espacial de la espera en el escenario es analizada para identificar los contextos en los que estos procesos tienen lugar. Por otro lado, la Penélope del autor Enda Walsh constituye una versión más salvaje y su obra ha sido catalogada como “una alocada revisión de Homero” (Pilný 2013: 219), en la que el mito es utilizado para interrogar el parón de Irlanda como consecuencia de la crisis de la época posterior al Tigre Celta. Ambos dramaturgos surgieron en los años noventa y forman parte de “una generación talentosa de autores teatrales en la Irlanda contemporánea” (Randolph 2012: 47).
