Résumé

The novel Middlesex was written in 2002 by the American author Jeffrey Eugenides and won the Pulitzer Prize the following year, as a reward for the extremely “overplotted” yet captivating narrative(s) that compose(s) it. Through the understanding of the mythical influences and mythological implications altogether interwoven in Middlesex, the story of the Stephanides family becomes a symbol for all types of hybrid identities in American society.
