Elfriede Jelinek. Smert i diva I-V. The Drama of Princesses. (Death and the Maiden)
"In the collection "Death and the Maiden", Elfriede Jelinek once again brings women to the scene as the eternally repressed in the Western European cultural tradition. Fairy princesses and modern style icons (including the literature style) recite their pre-death speeches or talk already from beyond. But having a voice does not mean owning one's destiny at all, for no princess manages to avoid misfortune by the male hand - Snow-White falls prey to the Hunter, Sweetbrier is destroyed with the Prince's kiss, Rosamunde survives, but gets silent because of the insidious Fulvio, Jackie bitterly cheers the death of her rival Marilyn, the dead Silvia and Ingeborg travel in the realm of the dead. Each of the princesses turns out doomed to a tragic fate, and British Princess Diana, whose portrait completes this gallery, is no exception. "
