Tragic Heroines from Greek Myth

by Erin on February 27, 2012

The following list of tragic heroines from Greek mythology was inspired by something I read recently in the book Olympian Dreamers. These forlorn figures were popular subjects with some of the Victorian Classical painters. Indeed, the heroines are described in the book as being the victims of “personal misfortune or disappointed love”.

Andromeda

Antigone

Ariadne

Danae

Eurydice

Hero

Iphigenia

Persephone

Psyche
