This lecture will examine the feminine myths of classical Greek theater as they were appropriated in Caribbean theater of the mid-20"' century and their relationship with other works of contemporary theater: Electra Garrig6 (1948) and the relationship between Virgilio Pinera's work and that of Eugene O'Neill; Medea en espejo (1960), by Jose Triana, and its double reference to Grillparzer's Medea and Unamuno's Medea; and finally La pasion segun Antigono Perez (1 968), by the Puerto Rican playwright Luis Rafael Sanchez, and the European revisions of the myth of Antigone, such as those of Anouilh and Brecht.
