The Beautiful and much Maligned Helen of Troy!
I review the story of little known Jocasta, mother and wife of Oedipus, in Netalie Haynes book, Pandora's Jar: Women in the Greek Myths.
Pandora's Box: Women in Greek Myths. Natalie Haynes chooses ten women in Greek myths whose stories have been told and retold, in paintings, jars, films, operas, musicals. She noticed that major women characters in the original versions became nonexistent or pale shadows of themselves as time passed and with each retelling. She retells the story of ten Greek mythical women, delves into ancient texts and foregrounds them.
