This book presents a reevaluation of Penelope, one of the most  universally admired female characters in western literature.  Richard Heitman casts her in a new light, emphasising her role as  a pillar of integrity and wisdom in Odysseus's absence, and her  courage, steadfastness and integrity throughout. This thematic  approach to the text also considers Penelope's place as a female  role model, right up to the present day.
