The myth of the femme fatale is present in the social imaginary in a latent and devastating form. Passing through ancient mythologies and landing on the current condition of the feminine, we can see that, although the struggle for women's rights has reached a scale never before seen in societies, there is still a very strong image of the feminine destructive, negative and fatal. The woman-sex, the woman-desire, the woman-ruin has contributed and still contributes to the fact that this imaginary persists and subjugates the female element to submission and even to hatred of man. Our main objective is to analyze the myth of the femme fatale in the Argentine Tango narratives, perceiving how the Tango singer's ethos is constructed and how the doubly paratopic female figure is constituted and felt by the main male figure of the Tango, the compadrito.

Introducing DeepReview

Artificial Intelligence Based 3rd Peer Reviewer
Meet DeepReview, our 3rd reviewer in the extensive double-blind peer-review process. It's a new generation of Artifical Intelligence that works on deep neural network of machine learning to review research papers. At London Journals Press, we follow an exhaustive process of peer-review, and each article is reviewed by at least two peer reviewers and a team of editorial board members. DeepReview acts as the third peer reviewer that can detect writing styles, plagiarism (for the second time), grammar, contextual spellings, vocabulary, and quality of the article without any human biasing
