    Chthonia Gorgona - Ho mythos sten hellenike keramike [Chthonia Gorgona - The Myth as Depicted in Greek Pottery] by Stamates A. Fritzilas

    In greek. Soft cover, 21 cm, 112 pp. (22 B/W plates), 215 g. // Γίνονται παρατηρήσεις σε ερμηνευτικά θέματα και στις σχέσεις μύθου και αγγειογραφίας κατά την αρχαϊκή και κλασσική περίοδο. Εδώ δίδεται μια νέα ερμηνεία για το μυθολογικό θέμα μιας μικρής ομάδας αγγείων του αττικού μελανόμορφου ρυθμού, στα οποία εικονίζεται ο Ηρακλής να οδηγεί δεμένο με σχοινί ένα τετράποδο θηρίο, η ταύτιση του οποίου παρέμενε έως πρόσφατα ένας μυθολογικός γρίφος κι ένα άλυτο εικονογραφικό πρόβλημα για τη νεότερη έρευνα. Παλαιότερα είχε σχετιστεί, λανθασμένα πιστεύω, με κάποιο από τα γνωστά φόβητρα ή τέρατα της κλασσικής αρχαιότητας. Στον τελευταίο σχολιασμό του θέματος, στο έγκυρο εικονογραφικό λεξικό της κλασσικής μυθολογίας (Lexicon Iconographicum Mythologiae Classicae) δεν προτιμήθηκε ως λύση καμία ερμηνεία.

    Circe by Madeline Miller

    -: Little Brown and Company, 2018. -. Hardback. New/-. -. A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story," this #1 New York Times bestseller "manages to be both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right" (Alexandra Alter, The New York Times). In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child--not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power--the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves. Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus. But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love. With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world. | 400 pages | 160 x 236 x 33mm | 590g.
