. . . In a series of insightful excursions through the institutional culture of schools and classrooms Kanpol provides us with a rich tapestry of experiences within which are found not only conformity, coercion, and alienation, but also hope, dignity, and an empowering pedagogy of the other. Most significantly, the practices that value cultural differences and that enhance the voice of those historically silenced and demeaned emerge out of the egalitarian commitments and struggles of teachers. . . . .In Kanpol's clear but simple formulation of similarity within difference' there is the vision of human relationships which honor cultural, linguistic, and historical distinctiveness, but which insist on the continuing vitality and viability of a common human vision and on the necessity of finding the common ground of political struggle. . . . - Svi Shapiro, From the Foreword

The notorious image of Pandora haunts mythology: a woman created as punishment for the crimes of man, she is the bearer of hope yet also responsible for the Earth’s desolation. She binds together perpetuating dichotomies that underlie the most fundamental aspects of the Western canon: beauty and evil, body and soul, depth and superficiality, truth and lie. Speaking in multiplicity, Pandora emerges as the first sign of female complexity. In this compelling study, Vered Lev Kenaan offers a radical revision of the Greek myth of the first woman. She argues that Pandora leaves a decisive mark on ancient poetics and shows that we can unravel the profound impact of Pandora’s image once we recognize that Pandora embodies the very idea of the ancient literary text. Locating the myth of the first woman right at the heart of feminist interrogation of gender and textuality, Pandora’s Senses moves beyond a feminist critique of masculine hegemony by challenging the reading of Pandora as a one-dimensional embodiment of the misogynist vision of the feminine. Uncovering Pandora as a textual principle operating outside of the feminine, Lev Kenaan shows the centrality of this iconic figure among the poetics of such central genres as the cosmological and didactic epic, the Platonic dialogue, the love elegy, and the ancient novel. Pandora’s Senses innovates our understanding of gender as a critical lens through which to view ancient literature.
