Title: Mito, tragedia griega y transculturación cubana: Electra Garrigó de Virgilio Piñera
Authors: Paladini, Ludovica
Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: Padova, Studio Editoriale Gordini
Abstract: 'Electra Garrigò' is a theatrical piece by Virgilio Piñera and a significant contribution to the national canon of Cuban drama. This tragicomedy, written in 1941 but published only seven years later, is inscribed in the project of reviewing the classical myth in the light of the social and political events of that period. Piñera leads an ethical analysis on the relationship between man and woman within the family, throught the use of the ancient mythological figure. In his work he manages to reverse the conventional roles, and with subtle irony and a very skilful intertextual research, he recreates the Hellenic tradition in the absurd everyday life of Cuban-ness.
