I love Margaret Atwood's sequence, “The Penelopiad,” which shows us a side of Penelope that is always veiled in Homer. Atwood's Penelope struggles with the knowledge that she herself colluded with the deaths of the slave women, hanged by her son Telemachus. The theme of women's collusion with the abuse of women is an important theme, essential in our age of intersectional feminism and #MeToo.
