Pandora's Jar: Women in the Greek Myths by Natalie Haynes EPUB



The Greek myths are among the world's most important cultural building blocks, and they have been retold many times, but rarely do they focus on the remarkable women at the heart of these ancient stories.



Stories of gods and monsters are the mainstay of epic poetry and Greek tragedy, from Homer to Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides, from the Trojan War to Jason and the Argonauts.  



And still, today, a wealth of novels, plays and films draw their inspiration from stories first told almost 3,000 years ago.  



But modern tellers of Greek myth have usually been men, and they have routinely shown little interest in telling women’s stories. And when they do, those women are often painted as monstrous, vengeful or just plain evil. But Pandora - the first woman, who according to legend unloosed chaos upon the world - was not a villain, and even Medea and Phaedra have more nuanced stories than generations of retellings might indicate.  



Now, in Pandora’s Jar, Natalie Haynes - broadcaster, writer and passionate classicist - redresses this imbalance.
