Abstract: Este trabajo examina el modo en que las autoras feministas critican los estereotipos de género mediante la reescritura del mito de Eva y el uso de la parodia. Se analizan obras de Emma Tennant, Fay Weldon, y Michelene Wandor.
The aim of this paper is to examine the myth of Eve as a tool used by feminist writers in order to criticise the stereotypes which have traditionally defined women. Three works-by Emma Tennant, Fay Weldon and Michelene Wandor-will exemplify the way contemporary women writers subvert the images of Eve the Mother and Eve the Temptress, using parody for this aim. Invariably, subversive characters such as Lilith or the diverse representations of a non-conformist Eve are portrayed to this effect. The Bakhtinian reading of Eve in Wandor's Gardens of Eden attempts to offer another way of feminist protest against Myth.
