Sumario:The myth of Orpheus has been widely recreated in Argentine literature of the twentieth and twenty first century. Canto de Euridyce (1966), a long poem by Graciela Maturo (Paraná, 1928) exemplifies its impact. The myth is recreated in this long poem from a feminine perspective that gives voice and prominence to Euridyce, a fundamental but mute character in many of the classic and modern recreations. The analysis is oriented to examine how Maturo re-elaborates the katabasis sequence from the experience of loving abandonment, and the desire for reunion; how this experience and the affective states linked to it, are associated with the darkness/ light, descent/ ascent symbolism, the ouroboros and the primordial androgynous myth; finally, how, by virtue of the structure of the long poem an oscillation arises between lyricism and diegesis, which gives the character of Eurydice a heroic dimension.
