Remembering Prometheus and Antigone: Rebellion and Mercy. Basque Rewritings of Greek Myths during Times of Contemporary Political Conflict

Iragan ekainean, Amaia Elizalde kidea Greziako Athens Institute for Education and Research deritzanean egon zen kongresu batean. Bertan, Prometeoren eta Antigonaren mitoek euskal gatazkaren testuinguruan izan dituzten berridazketa artistikoak izan zituen hizpide. A. Elizaldere sarrera utziko dizuegu jarraian:

Some contemporary Basque artistic and literary rewritings of Greek myths are closely connected to the socio-political situation in the Basque Country, these rewritings in effect mirroring its cultural reality. I will describe the process that the rewriting of the Prometheus and, especially, the Antigone Greek myths have undergone, focusing on the Basque artistic and literary context of the second half of the 20th century and following Gérard Genette’s (1989) theory about transtextuality.

Through this analysis I will refer to texts in the broadest sense, including any kind of art form. To rewrite means to reread, to remember and to update, always with a touch of imagination, which involves not an identical replica but a degree of transformation. In the case of Basque rewritings of the Antigone Greek myth, the heroine has suffered deep changes for different reasons. I will specially focus on the identity-transformation that Greek Antigone, as a heroine and female symbol of rebellion, has suffered, to the point that it could even be said that, ultimately, she turns into Prometheus. Analysing this from the point of view of gender, postcolonial and subaltern studies, I will try to demonstrate that this example of rewriting has something to do with the transformations that subalterns’ speech and identity outside the field of art and literature experience.
