ATLANTE DELLE SIRENE

ilSaggiatore, december 2017 

 

Whether in the form of rapacious half-women and half-birds, or in the more customary shape of mermaids, the Sirens and their alluring voice have proven a staple of Western mythology. Their seductive charms are not only worked upon sailors and combatants, but first and foremost upon poets, writers, painters, sculptors, musicians. From Homer to Shakespeare, from Dante to Joyce, from Wagner to Ravel, from Böcklin to Waterhouse, from Splash to Harry Potter, sirens, mermaids, undines never cease to enthral the minds of artists. Playwright and philosopher Agnese Grieco goes back in time to investigate the origin of their myth, and wondrously follows its many paths, its endless, labyrinthine metamorphosis, in order to find out, once and for all, the secret of the sirens.
