Between Greece and Northwestern Europe: The Fairy Tales of Penelope Delta
Ever since I started studying Greek mythology in grade school, I've been fascinated by the world of Mount Olympus and beyond. The idea of all-powerful gods and goddesses who were in charge of specific parts of the world enthralled me, the prospect of magical powers and fantastic beasts thrilled me, and the promise of immortality and ultimate power enticed me. Like other retellings and reinterpretations, books that use Greek myths as their inspiration take an old and familiar story and update to be something new, excited, and never before seen.
Why bother rewriting something that has already been written, you may ask?
Because in recreating a familiar tale, you uncover unexpected details that can change the story entirely. Plus, like all books, it's all good fun. Ready to give some a try? Here are nine Greek mythology retellings that will change the way you see Zeus, Persephone, and all those other Greek gods and goddesses you thought you knew so well. Click Here To Buy.
FAIRY TALES OF MODERN GREECE - 12 illustrated Greek stories
A modern and very lose interpretation of the myth of Persephone and Hades, Peter S. Beagle's long-awaited novel is filled with as much magic, wonder, and excitement as the original tale.
When the young and captivating Lioness arrives in Puget sound, the lives of long-time partners Abe and Joanna are changed forever. The mysterious young girl awakens something inside of them, but it doesn't take more than a summer season for Lioness's own dark past to start to chill the world around them.
Inventive, sexy, and lyrical, Summerlong will make you fall in love with myths all over again. In Margaret Atwood's updated version of Homer's classic The Odyssey , readers get to see a whole new side to Penelope, the hero's faithful wife, and her 12 eventual hanged maids. A brilliant account of Penelope's 20 years at home waiting for her husband, two decades spent fighting off suitors, ruling land, running a house, and raising her son, The Penelopiad is a unique, entertaining, and thought-provoking twist on a myth you thought you knew everything about.
In Marie Phillips's wildly funny Gods Behaving Badly , the Greek gods and goddesses you know and love get a dirty 21st-century update. In this story, Aphrodite is a phone sex operator, Apollo is a TV psychic, Artemis is a dog-walker, and their legendary powers are starting to fade. When two humans get caught up in a battle between two of the most powerful gods, the entire fate of the world rests on their shoulders, begging the question, who are our real heroes in the end?
