Reflections on communication

  • In Greek Merope is also a feminine and masculine name.
  •  Merope was married to Sisyphus.
  • Merope was the adoptive mother of Oedipus
  • She was one of the 7 pleiades (also name of a stellar constellation) that never appeared, that’s why only 6 are seen in the sky. The myth says that she married a human and for that the gods punished to her..
  • ”Merope” In literature a work of Voltaire.
  • Merope is the name of a plant of the Roteacea family 

The question is:

What are we talking about when we talk about Merope?
