Myths Retold

All of my narrations of Greek myths are going to be listed on this page here, in chronological order.  (That is to say, they’re in the order in which the myths take place, not the order in which I wrote them.  Or at least they’re in attempted chronological order.  Some of them…yeah, the order may change a bit as I try to figure out how to fuse the chronology.  Plus some of them span so many years that they necessarily overlap each other.)  This way, if you want to check out the myths, you can just come to this page here, and find out what’s new, rather than having to scroll through lists of my posts.  At the moment, I’m putting up a new one every Thursday.

Regarding the organization of the list, I’ve decided to put little sub-groupings, so you can tell what some of the myths are about.  Some of the sub-groupings (like the Theban Cycle and the life of Heracles) have to be split up and put in several places in order to still be roughly chronological.  Some of the chronology still needs work, though…

Eos and Tithonous

Tiresias

The Theban Cycle

Amphitryon and Alcmene

The Life of Heracles

The Voyage of the Argo

Meleager

Orpheus and Eurydice

The Theban Cycle (part 2)

Theseus and Pirithoos

Apollo and Koronis

Admetos and Alcestis

The Betrayal of Aphrodite

Tales of Aphrodite

The Theban Cycle (part 3)

Ultimately, if I end up doing versions of all the major myths (and probably a number of minor ones as well), I think it would be cool to gather them together into a book.  Given the narrative style, I could call it something crazy like “A Child’s Book of Greek Myths for Adults” to highlight both the style and the inappropriate-for-children content of some of the stories.  Ideally, for a title like that, it should have some storybook-like illustrations of inappropriate matter.  (If anyone wants to do the illustrations, let me know…)

For a very different re-telling of a myth, please check out this page to get the links to my play “Pyrrha,” adapting an 18th century opera that didn’t do justice to the myth it was adapting.
