The love of Penelope and Ulysses is undying.
Penelope and Ulysses explores the historical and yet contemporary journey into the life and struggles of Penelope, a woman who refuses to be dispirited or defeated. Hers is a strange, complex, and multifaceted world. Her life, surrounded by war, is inextricably shaped by the decisions that men have made for her.
Even so, Penelope refuses to be a spectator—a pawn in men’s schemes. She rides the waves of turbulence and danger, surviving on her wit, guile, and pure intelligence. She skillfully weaves her seductive plots to ultimately control the men who would control her. All the while, she schemes, always working toward her escape and eventual freedom.
Penelope is well-read in the philosophies of her world, well trained in battle, and keeps her own counsel. From a life of solitude, she explores the most turbulent adventure of all—the quest for self-actualization, the ownership of her self.
