Summary:
Bestiary is a fabular retelling of the myth of the Sphinx. Removing her character from the restraints imposed upon her narrow inclusion in Oedipus's myth, this novella aims to explore the questions raised by her paradoxical biology and confused identity that are suggested in myth, but go unexplored. In this work, the character Sphinx is given an opportunity to tell herself, and with this agency and voice accorded to her, Bestiary interrogates her own monstrousness: her abrupt delineation between animal and human, her troubled sexuality, and the aporia of her desires.
