La belleza femenina en las paremias espańolas de origen grecolatino
FEMININE BEAUTY IN SPANISH PROVERBS OF GREEK AND LATIN ORIGIN
Languages of publication
Spanish proverbs are an unquestionable source of information about ideology prevailing in Spanish-speaking community’s mentality. Proverbs contain stereotypes, conceptions and a worldwide perception belonging to society that coined them. Here I intend to notice how a determined conception of women (specifically positive and negative aspects of feminine beauty) was already reflected in ancient Greek and Latin proverbs and literature, and how this image is still prevalent in Spanish proverbs deriving from classical ones.
