“In Penelope, a state of waiting is depicted in long stretches of time going by. […] Penelope waiting years for Odysseus to return was a model for women, waiting for their men to come home from war, from the pub after work, from their mistresses'… The voice of the woman is from a Hollywood film of the fifties. I wonder sometimes if it is better now.” (Barbara Meter)
