In this exhilarating and far-ranging study Vered Lev Kenaan takes the lid off Pandora as mythical figuration of primal plexity. First textualized by Hesiod with repercussions throughout the cultures of Antiquity, not least in Plato s and others rough hands, Pandoran femininity will collide with treacherous Ovid s lascivious imagination, releasing ever more irresistible mystique and mystery. Lev Kenaan brings to life a powerful vision of the poetics of literature figured as feminine. John Henderson, University of Cambridge, editor and translator of Asinaria"
