Abstract

The paper investigates the relationship between Yourcenar’s monologue “Clytemnestre ou le crime” and Aeschylus’ tragedy “Agamemnon” in the literary representation of the sexual identity of the mythical queen Clytemnestra. In particular, the purpose is to demonstrate how a gender fluidity of the twen- tieth-century female character is a re-elaboration carried out by Yourcenar of a complex and hybrid sexual identity already present in the classical hypotext.
