Abstract

In the 1999 monograph The Classic Fairy Tales (edited by Maria Tatar), Karen E. Rowe in the chapter “To Spin a Yarn: The Female Voice in Folklore and Fairy Tales” lists two metaphors for women storytellers, namely, as the first model - women writers - she cites the antique example of Philomela (Ovid: Metamorphoses), who was victimized on the basis of a myth and was literally and metaphorically without language, therefore she metaphorically weaved her story into a tapestry and sent it to her sister to read. The motive of the female weaver is also found in the Bible.
