This paper analyses the appropriated and reinvented mythology that Wittig weaves throughout her 1969 novel/manifesto, Les Guérillères. Through her rewriting of both sacred and societal myths, Wittig offers a larger critique of the societal institutions that instill and enforce women's oppression. *Reading the working paper in advance is required for attendance.* Email cura@bu.edu for your copy.
