The article is on the vulnerability in the contemporary poetry of Women Writers, especially on the relationship between this subject and the different ways of rewriting the myth (Antigone, Cassandra, Sibilla). Texts of Amelia Rosselli, Alda Merini, Christa Wolf, Wis³awa Szymborska, Dacia Maraini, Jolanda Insana are mentioned. Finally, in these authors, the topic of vulnerability turns from limit to opportunity and is related to the issue of writing.
