Symbolism of Bed in Euripides' Alcestis
In the Greek imaginary the concept of bed is associated with various institutions and especially with the feminine. In Eu ripides' Alcestis bed represents the place of exchange of material and symbolic va lues. The system of reversals of gender roles is materialized in the bed and al lows both Alcestis and Admetus to trans gress the traditional gender roles. Adme tus has to recover his sovereignty and aut hority in oikos and in polis though Alce stis' bed, whereas with her death in bed Alcestis surpasses the traditional femini ne role, obtaining kleos in poems and an inscription on her grave.
